International finance granted to Customs

In addition to having the operational expenditure financed by the state budget, Customs finances its operations and procurements through different external financing instruments, mostly provided by the EU. Besides the EU, international financing is also granted by national and international funds, foundations, organisations and other government agencies.   

The main international sources of funding for Customs are the Hercule programmes of the European Anti-fraud Office (OLAF), the EU Internal Security Funds (ISF-Police and ISF-Borders), the ENI-CBC programme (European Neighbourhood Instrument-Cross Border Cooperation) and Eurostat.
