Free Trade Zones/Warehouses

There are three free trade zones in Estonia; at Muuga Port (one of the four harbors that form the Port of Tallinn complex), in Sillamae (an industrial area in Estonia's northeast), and in Valga (located in southern Estonia, near the Latvian border). At this time, only the Muuga Port and the Sillamae zones are actively working.

There are a number of bonded warehouses located in border areas. The free storage areas are available equally to all firms, whether domestic or foreign. Goods may be stored in the warehouses for up to a year, free from import or export duties. The term of storage may be extended by the Customs Board. While the processing of warehoused goods is prohibited, repackaging, and preparing goods for sale and transport is not considered to be processing.
