Customs clearance tips
- Each consignment with its own notice of arrival is to be declared separately.
- Before you start submitting a new declaration, you therefore need to make sure that you are able to find the goods you wish to declare in the declaration service or that you know the commodity code for the goods. You cannot save a declaration as incomplete and return to it at a later time.
- Completed declarations are stored for 90 days under “My declarations”.
- Check the notice of arrival of your consignment to see whether or not you need to personally submit the decision on release to the transport company after clearing the goods. You get the decision on release from the declaration service. Without the decision on release, transport companies will not be able to complete the delivery of the parcel.
