Here is all the technical and useful information on how to participate in PrimExpo.

If your firm is based in an EC/ESL state and you intend to post employees to perform cross-border service during the Fair, or you are an independent service provider, you must perform at least 8 days prior to the start of the activity, an online notification.

This also applies to assembly and disassembly work, which must be notified by the company performing the work, whether it is the exhibitor himself or a company commissioned by him (in which case it will be up to the company in question to fill out the notification). Notification procedure for short-term gainful activity

The notification procedure can be found on the website of the federal authority:

PrimExpo Management cannot take responsibility for making such notification on behalf of the foreign employer or self-employed worker present at the Fair, and is not responsible for the information entered by the exhibitor.

The opening hours of the customs offices must be observed for the customs imposition of tradable goods. You can make customs declarations Monday through Friday during taxation hours. Some customs offices are also open on Saturday mornings.
