The Complexities of Importing into Ukraine

The Ukrainian Tech industry is thriving, but the area of ICT is also relatively young. As a result, there is massive scope for growth, maturing of skills, and appetite for trade, particularly in the tech sector. Although not an EU member, its proximity to the Black Sea and Eastern Europe makes it easily accessible, adding further appeal for foreign investors. However, the country is challenged by the legacy of cumbersome regulations, customs procedures, and bureaucracy that can make importing into Ukraine a demanding undertaking. For example, Ukraine imposes tight restrictions on the import of certain top-tier Tech brands such as Cisco. Additionally, some products require specific certificates that can be costly and time-consuming to obtain.
