Rules to Be Followed
When Carrying Competition Equipment Into and Out of China
for RoboCup 2015
For a successful RoboCup and for your convenient entering and exiting China, we would like to remind you of the following rules of the People’s Republic of China:
I. All the equipment you carry into China must be truthfully declared. The declaration of the goods should be proceeded in accordance with the provisions of the Announcement of the General Administration of Customs of the People's Republic of China (No. 72 ). Please refer to Attachment 2.
II. Those players who bring in competition equipment should make preparations to declare them at customs. Those who declare goods for temporary import and export are required, according to rules and regulations, to pay a certain amount of tariff deposit. When the team leaves China, those who demand for refund with the relevant documents obtained when entering China can get the refund at the airport of the exit port (the same as the entry airport, as required). If your exit port is not the same entry port, those who have brought in equipment have to entrust an agency to send the equipment home from the airport of the same entry port and get back the tariff deposit, otherwise, not refund will be returned. Therefore, we suggest you enter and exit via the same port (airport).
