Officers of the Kazan Airport customs office of Tatarstan Customs held a training for the “Kazan 2013” volunteers who will meet the participants of the XXVII World Summer Universiade in the International Airport of Kazan.

To organize and hold the event of such a large scale at a top-level, it is planned to engage more than 30 volunteers who speak fluently foreign languages to work directly in the area of border and customs control. The responsibility of the volunteers will be to assist the Universiade participants during the customs control procedures. Trained volunteers will explain for the passengers arrived what to do after the luggage receipt, help them in completing of customs declarations, and clarify the difference between the “red” and “green” channels. Volunteers will also give the information, if necessary, about  the safety of the use of technical means for customs control (such as an introscope, a metal detector, and "Yantar " system).

The volunteers learnt in detail the customs office facilities and safety measures at Kazan Airport. The procedure of customs control and the screening equipment operation principles were also explained to them. Soon a reminder with customs regulations and contact information of the responsible customs officers will be distributed among them.

The first event with the participation of volunteers will be held in the near future, when the heads of sport delegations arrive in Kazan.
