UNIT 7



PASSENGER CUSTOMS DECLARATION FORM

Text 1

Task 1. Read and translate the text.

Russia like almost all countries has certain formalities through which passengers must pass. They include passport and visa control and customs inspection of passengers’ baggage.

Almost all countries have forms that the passenger must fill in. Incoming passengers fill in an entry declaration form, outgoing passengers fill in an exit declaration form which is to be presented to the customs officer. The pointsof the declaration must be answered in full words in block letters. The passenger is to fill in his full name, citizenship, country of residence, country of destination, etc. The passenger must also declare prohibited, restricted and dutiable articles that he is carrying across the border. Information must be presented both in figures and in words. Personal belongings are brought in and taken out duty free and need not be declared.

If the passenger understates the value of an article or misrepresentsthe article in his declaration form, he may have to pay a penalty in addition to payment of duty. The article can be detained and confiscated if the penalty is not paid. If in doubt about the value of an article, the passenger should declare it and then ask the customs officer for assistance in valuing it.

Undeclared foreign currency in cash found during the search is liable to confiscation as smuggling.

The customs officer may ask the passenger to open his baggage for inspection, because the customs officer always has the right to check if the passenger is complying with the regulations and that he is not transporting goods exceedingthe quantities for which no formalities are required. The owner of the baggage must answer all the questions of the officer-in-charge on the contents of his baggage and must presentany article for examination. It is the passenger’s responsibility to unpack,open and repack hisbelongings.

The entry declaration must be kept by the passenger for the duration of the stay in the country or abroad and must be presented together with the exit declaration on the way back. It can’t be renewed in case of loss.

Task 11. a) Read and translate the text.

PRIZED VIOLIN GROUNDED BY RED TAPE*


Just like Michael Jackson, who once tried to take a Cossak saber out of Russia, U.S. violinist Ernesto Farago ran up against Russia’s peculiar laws on antiques when he tried to take his musical instrument out of the country.

Mr. Farago’s 1940 Italian violin was detained by customs officials at Sheremetyevo airport on the suspicion that he was trying to smuggle it out of Russia.

The incident seems to have been the result of misunderstanding.

Mr. Farago, speaking from his home in Springfield, Virginia, said that he failed to declare his instrument, worth $28,000 because he had been misinformed by customs officials in the arrival terminal.

“I was told by an officer that if I was bringing in the instrument for professional purposes, there was no need for me to declare it,” said Mr. Farago, who had visited Russia to play two concerts in Voronezh.

He has now been separated from his beloved violin for nearly a month, but the saga should soon end happily.

The Culture Ministry received a document from U.S. confirming that this instrument belongs to Mr. Farago and is ready to issue permission to take the instrument out of the country. The Ministry official in charge of the export and import of items of cultural and historical value said that all problems could have been avoided if Mr. Farago had declared the instrument upon his arrival.

It says on the customs declaration form that all valuables of a historical and cultural nature should be declared. This is so they can be taken out of the country again.


(from “Moscow Times”)

*Red tape – official rules that seem unnecessary and prevent things from being

done quickly and easily (syn. bureaucracy)

b) Make a glossary. Choose seven words to remember.

1. What happened to Ernesto Farago at Sheremetyevo airport?

2. What was the passenger accused of?

3. Why was the violin detained?

4. Why didn’t Mr. Farago declare his violin?

5. How long did the investigation last?

6. What was Mr. Farago’s mistake?

7. Has the violin been returned to its owner?

8. What can you say about the customs officer who had misinformed

Mr.Farago?

9. What customs regulations can you remember in respect of this incident?

10. Do you think such cases are common?

11. What should be done to avoid such misunderstandings?

 

Task 12.Sum up the information from the newspaper article:

a) Comment on the situation from the point of view of:

 

- Mr. Farago;

- a customs officer from Sheremetyevo airport;

- a Federal Customs Service official;

- a Culture Ministry official;
