Is there any news or at least perspectives on that matter? Page on the UPS website about that restrictions is not even exist by now. I wish I could live in normal, civilised country...

If there is no good news, can you recommend me a bypass route?

Unfortunately due to the very strict customs regulations in Russia, we can not ship there still.

Russia does not accept packages that carry duty (like from Shapeways) to individuals. this situation is so bad that some carriers, like UPS who we use, have suspended acceptance of dutiable shipments sent to private individuals in Russia until further notice.

If UPS changes their policy, we will of course be happy to change ours, but for the moment its not possible.

So, there is no way I could get print from Shapeways? Crap.

No relative, friend or relative of friend who moved to e.g. Germany or Czech republic and would be
trustworthy and willing to order/accept a parcel for you ? If all else fails, you could become a truck driver,
carry chanterelle mushrooms or Russian steel across half of Europe and return with a few plastic figurines
on the dashboard each time Very Happy .

Sorry for bumping old thread, but is there any news, I wonder? Because today on UPS website I found this news:
http://www.ups.com/content/ru/ru/about/news/20120912A.html
It is in russian, but basicaly it is about how UPS starts sending their aicrafts directly to Vnukovo airport in Moscow and dated SEPTEMBER 2012. If restriction with shipping to russia is still intact, then it means that this news on official site is fake? Or what? I am lost.

Does the russian text say anything about shipping to individuals (as opposed to companies, universities etc) ?
As far as I remember, the whole problem was always about the huge amount of paperwork required by the
Russian customs officials for delivery of foreign goods to private individuals, which made UPS, TNT and others
refuse such deliveries.

It is unclear. They refers to customers simply as "clients", and that may both mean individual and company ones.

Did you know there are companies that will forward your packages to you in Russia? It's sort of like having a friend in the US or Europe for example and you use your fiends address and they then ship it to you for a small fee.

Two that I know of are Shipito and Bongo. Both of these ship to Russia.

I know about these two companies because I did research on this a few years ago for a book I was writing and determined that these two companies were the best ones to use at the time. And now, at least two years later they are both still in business. There are other companies that do this kind of package forwarding so shop around and see if any better companies have come up since I looked into it.

Wow, thanks! I never heard about those. Though this service probably would double costs for shipping, I think it worth a shot.

Amazing gallery! Thanks for posting! Very Happy

Actually, it's cheaper if you order numerous small things and use combined shipping. They'll store your shipments in their warehouse until you accumulate a number of packages then they will ship it to you in one big box. But for shipping one thing at a time, yeah way more expensive.
