Arrival at DME from ZRH. Travelled with excess baggage including technical equipment (three boxes) requiring ATA carnet. Immigration area first; strong smell of diesel. Three lines with two officer booths each but possibility to go to booth on different line i.e. possible pushing in. Officer says nothing but takes ages to inspect your passport. Never mind it's a tourist visa. Collected bags from carousels. This is a small and chaotic area with people pushing trolleys into you at speed from all angles. Then customs: with ATA carnet went to area that looked like 'anything to declare'. Waved carnet at officer. He took us directly into a staff area at end of corridor is a customs office. They (old guy and a trainee) dealt with the relevant section of the carnet checked a few items communicated in English took photocopies. Had a cover letter in Russian explaining what purpose of equipment which helped. Were told to come back to the same place exactly when departing. This was pretty efficient. Leaving from DME: Travelling from area of KUNTSEVSKAYA Metro station (i.e. West Moscow) allowed four hours to departure. Orbital motorway anticlockwise pretty quiet at 0615AM clockwise direction was already very busy and slow. Kashira highway going south east to DME also OK. So that part in 45 minutes. Possible to drive to front of the only terminal get (free trolley) and go straight inside building. All baggage scanned just inside building but this was simple no delay. Went to the left (east) end of check in area to get to arrivals showed carnet to a the first customs-looking oficer available. He waved us to the staff area to have the next section of the carnet dealt with. No queues no problem. Documents were photocopied and we were on our way. Then back to check in area (waving carnet at anyone official) checked in personal baggage taken told to go to airline cashier desk (Swiss) to pay excess baggage. Showed checkin clerk the excess baggage receipt then took the three boxes to excess baggage reception. It was scanned and we pushed into a lift and said goodbye to it. Then went upstairs through passport control/security. This was no problem either (got waved into business lane for unknown reason). The whole process through the airport to now was less than an hour so had almost an hour to spare. Departure area fairly busy but OK with simple layout no miles to walk anywhere but enough shops eateries and places to sit.
