According to the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food, for the vast majority of Ukrainian agricultural products exported to Turkey, the 0% import duty rate will continue to be maintained. It is reported by Railway Supply magazine with reference to Rail.insider.

From May 1, 2023, Turkey plans to renew the duty on imports of key grain crops for all exporting countries. It will be 130% and applies to wheat, barley, corn, rye, oats and sorghum.

As noted in the department, Turkey is a major importer of Ukrainian wheat. However, this duty does not apply to a larger share of Ukrainian grain, since our products are imported to Turkey mainly for sale to third countries, and duties are not paid for them.

Turkey has two customs regimes for imports. The first concerns products used for domestic consumption. It is for such products that the Turkish government announced a temporary zero duty rate. Currently, this preferential regime has expired and the 130% customs rate is being returned. The second applies to products that are sold to third countries before or after processing. There is no fee for this regime.
