Ordering goods online

It’s easy to order goods from abroad, but the goods may be subject to restrictions or prohibitions, and you may have to clear your goods through customs and pay taxes.


If you order goods from the UK, parcels sent to you from the UK must be declared from 1 January 2021, and taxes and possible customs duties must be paid for them.  Further information: Brexit for private persons 

Do you have a question about a cleared parcel that has not been released?

Your parcel may be stuck due to Posti’s handling fee. Please visit the Posti website and check.
