All the above mentioned rules of custom control refer only to the Armenian borders crossing, not the Republic of Artsakh (Karabakh), as the RA and the Republic of Artsakh haven't interstate border in its classical interpretation. The passport-visa control is placed at the highway Goris-Stepanakert, not far from the village of Aghavno (former Zabukh), and here is realized only the selective check of passport and visa, without the Customs inspection.
