Starting September 1, a customs office will open in the northwestern Bulgarian city of Vidin, according to the press office of the government.

The unit was created through changes to the Rules of Organization of the Customs Agency necessitated by the new circumstances arising from the completion and launch of Danube Bridge 2.

According to statistics, a total of 31 568 cars crossed the Vidin – Kalafat Danube Bridge only in two weeks, of which 11 000 were freight vehicles.

A modern facility for customs inspection was built in Vidin using 100% EU funding.

On the territory of the district, there are also two land border crossing points on the Bulgarian-Serbian border, Bregovo and Vrashka Chuka.

The region also boasts a number of Danube ports and a free trade zone.

With the supplements to the Articles of Organization of the Customs Agency, a Montana-based customs bureau is created at the customs office in Lom.

As a result of the reorganization, the total headcount of the Customs Agency is to increase by 13, while the total headcount of the National Revenue Agency is to drop by the same number.

The provision of administrative capacity for the new structural units will be implemented by changing the total number of the employees of the Central Customs Directorate by 10.

As part of the campaign to reduce the regulatory burden for the business sector, the ruling makes changes to the tariff for fees collected by the Customs Agency

The fee for issuing a certificate for the (non)existence of unpaid public receivables is dropped.

As of January 1, 2013 the certificates are issued by the heads of the respective customs offices, and an application form for the document is available on the website of the Agency.

The fee of BGN 10 for providing information from the register of customs agents is also dropped.
