Points to consider

Lodge an export declaration to Customs free of charge in the export declaration service.

  • It pays to lodge the export declaration as an identified user, then you usually don’t have to visit Customs.
  • Identify yourself with a certificate card, online banking ID’s or a mobile certificate. You also need a Finnish personal ID.
  • Select ‘New declaration with economic impact’ and the correct procedure code beginning with 21.
  • Detailed instructions on completing the declaration are available in the service.

Add the Export Accompanying Document (EAD) to the postal parcel.

  • Print the EAD in the Export Declaration Service.
  • Place the EAD inside a plastic pocket taped onto the postal parcel so that the text is visible.

Customs will certify the exit of the goods out of the country based on the EAD, which forms the decision on release with confirmation of exit.

Print out the confirmation of exit by logging into the Export Declaration Service.


A freight consignment must have an EAD, i.e. an export accompanying document.

  • Print the EAD in the Export Declaration Service.
  • Give the EAD to the freight carrier.

Customs will certify the exit of the goods out of the country based on the EAD, which forms the decision on release with confirmation of exit.
