The Customs Administration will acquaint passengers on their rights and obligations when entering and leaving the country through an info-museum section, comprised of a display, banners and brochures on the type of goods that are allowed and forbidden, i.e. commodities to be reported with customs.
Customs Administration director Vanco Kargov opened the section at Skopje-based airport "Alexander the Great" on Wednesday, in the attendance of Interior Minister Gordana Jankuloska and Culture Minister Elizabeta Kanceska-Milevska.
"The goal is to give passengers entering or leaving the country simple information, since they are not exposed to unnecessary difficulties. This is a practice used by other countries too", said Kargov.
Special glass showcases include different types of commodities and items that are allowed or forbidden for entry and exit, commodities and items subject to customs taxes, trademark commodities and items, products of animal origin, artifacts and archaeological items subject to protection by international conventions, as well as info-brochures towards improving the passengers' knowledge of their rights and commitments when entering or leaving Macedonia's customs area.
The section is placed in cooperation with the Ministry of Culture, Museum of the City of Skopje, the Cultural Heritage Protection Office, Confiscated Property Management Agency, and the Ministry of Interior.
