The customs

It is not allowed to export from Russia any pieces of art and antiques produced before 1945. The export of works of art such as painting, graphics, sculpture, decorative and applied art produced after 1945 needs special authorization from the Commission of Experts for the Control over the Export and Import of Items of Cultural Value, irrespective of the form of their acquisition. The souvenirs, including folk handicrafts items, need no permission to be taken out of Russia. However, it might be helpful to keep the receipts, labels and pay-in cheques along.
The import of foreign currency is not restricted unlike the export limited to USD 500. The money amount imported has to be stated in the customs declaration, which should be kept till leaving Russia because the amounts above USD 500 otherwise need authorization of a bank to be exported. It is also advisable to put into the customs declaration the list of antiques and works of art imported, to avoid any confusion at the departure from Russia.
