A cultural property declared for export or temporary export from the Russian Federation is subject to mandatory examination. Based on the examination results, the expert issues an expert report to the applicant with valid conclusions as to whether the item to be exported is cultural property or not.
Export of cultural property is subject to state duty:
- • 5% of the value of the cultural property for individuals (but not greater than 1 million rubles).
- • 10% of the value of the cultural property for legal entities.
