Letters containing goods to destinations outside the European Union – remember to register the item!

When you are sending letters containing goods to destinations outside the EU, take into account that you must report the information regarding the content, sender and recipient of the item electronically and with a customs slip that will be glued on top of the letter. Please note that the United States, for example, does not accept items with insufficient information.

The customs clearance and handling fee of items arriving from outside the EU

When you order or receive parcels from outside the EU, please take into account that all arriving goods require customs clearance. In addition, value added tax must be paid on the goods as stated in the EU regulation. The customs clearance applies to both ordered products and shipments containing goods sent as a gift. If you are ordering gift items from online stores outside the EU, remember to do it on time so that you have time to handle the customs clearance before Christmas.

The impacts of the coronavirus pandemic on international deliveries

COVID-19 is still somewhat impacting international deliveries. Transports are operating to most of the world but delays are possible, especially at Christmas time. So make sure to send your Christmas cards and parcels abroad in good time!
