Custom Officer's Day in Russia Date in the current year: October 25, 2016

Custom Officer's Day in Russia All Russian customs officers celebrate their professional holiday on October 25. Customs Officer's Day in Russia was officially established on August 4, 1995 by the first President of Russia Boris Yeltsin.

In the Soviet Union, Customs Officer's Day was celebrated on May 29. After the dissolution of the USSR, Russian government abolished the old holiday and established a new one. The date of October 25 was chosen in connection with two major events in the history of the country's Customs Service.

On October 25, 1653 Tsar Alexey Mikhailovich adopted the Common Customs Regulation, which was the first legal document regulating customs in Russia. On the same day in 1991, the State Customs Committee under the Ministry for Economic Development was created, following the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Currently, customs in Russia are regulated by the Federal Customs Service of the Russian Federation. This service received its current name in 1994 and became subordinate to the government in 2006.

On their professional holiday, Russian customs officers are congratulated by their superiors and government officials. Some of them receive honorary awards for their outstanding service and dedication.
