Submitting an import declaration in advance

The customer can submit an import declaration before the goods arrive, but the declaration will not be processed by Customs until the goods have arrived.

Online declarants can only submit complete import declarations in advance.

Message declarants can also submit an import declaration using the simplified declaration procedure, in which case the missing details will be submitted in a supplementary import declaration. The use of simplified declaration is subject to authorisation.
