Deadline Approaching for ECMT Permits for 2021
You might need ECMT (European Conference of Minister of Transport) permits for journeys to or through the EU from 1 January 2021 if you are transporting goods or driving an empty vehicle.
You need a permit to transport most types of goods (or drive an empty vehicle) through the EU (except Cyprus), Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland and the UK to these 13 countries:
Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, North Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Russia, Serbia, Turkey, and Ukraine.
The deadline for permit applications for 2021 is 11:59 on 20 November 2020.
Applications should be made via the VOL system.
Permits will be allocated after the application period has ended, not on a first come first service basis. So, it is not too late!
