Waiver of formal documentary evidence requirement: passengers’ baggage and crews’ effects

This waiver applies to goods, not intended for commercial use, that:

  • accompany travellers
  • form part of their unaccompanied baggage, including household effects transported in removal vans or
  • form part of crews’ effects.

Where they cannot be released elsewhere under the instructions, they may be admitted at Turkish preference rates without requiring production of a movement certificate provided that they are claimed to be so eligible and there is no reason to doubt the claim.
