How to submit a transit declaration

You can submit a transit declaration in the Customs Transit Declaration Service on the customs website or with an EDI or XML message.

How do I use the Transit Declaration Service?

You don’t need permission from Customs to use the Transit Declaration Service. You can fill in the declaration as an unidentified user, then the declaration is not saved. However, the declaration is saved when submitted by a user who has been identified with a Katso ID.

How do I use message declaration?

For EDI or XML message declaration you need a system and a customs authorisation for message exchange. In the future, the only message format will be the XML message.
