Gift consignments

The recipient of the gift will have to lodge a customs declaration on the gift. If you do not know the contents of the gift, you should ask the sender. You will need to provide information on the contents and value of the gift for customs clearance.

Read these instructions when you receive or send gifts. Certain goods are subject to restrictions and prohibitions even as gifts. Such goods include foodstuffs, goods manufactured from endangered animals and plants, and snus.
