Customs Day of Belarus (20/09)

The Day of the Customs Officer is celebrated in Belarus annually on September 20.

The peculiarity of the geographical position of Belarus, which consists in the lack of access to the sea, as well as the borders with five countries since ancient times contributed to the development and strengthening of customs rules and regulations in the country.

It is natural that in 1996, shortly after the declaration of independence by Belarus, the professional holiday of customs officers and the date of its celebration were established in the Republic.
