You can declare the gift consignment personally or authorise someone else to declare it for you via the Customs Import Declaration Service. You can also buy the customs clearance as a service from the transport company. Read more about the customs clearance alternatives and about declaring goods.
For declaring your gift, you need the following:
- arrival notification from the transport company
- information on the gift and its value, for example, a free-form account on the value or a receipt on the goods. (If necessary, ask the sender for the account in advance.)
- Customs may also wish to see other documents.
Ask the sender for an account of the content and value of the gift consignment.
