Customs clearance

Starting from 01 October 2021, the method of customs clearance and value-added tax (VAT) payment for some consignments arriving from non-EU countries has changed again.

As of the date of effect of the amended VAT Act, the duty to pay VAT applies to all consignments with goods for private use of natural persons arriving from non-EU countries (except for goods with VAT paid at the online store). The limit for VAT exemption no longer applies.

All consignments worth less than EUR 150 newly require a customs declaration form to be filed online unless it has already been filed in another EU state.

More information about the changes related to customs clearance is available here or on the Customs Administration’s website at
