  • FAQ

    On 1 January 2021 current relations between the European Union and the United Kingdom will come to an end, whether a partnership agreement is concluded or not.

    Starting from 1 January 2021 the United Kingdom (UK) will be treated as a non-EU country for customs purposes.

    Parcels from and to the United Kingdom will have to follow the same procedure as that applied to third countries (non-EU countries), such as Canada or the United States. This means that these parcels must be accompanied by a customs form, which is necessary to be processed through customs.

    For more information, we advise you to contact the Brexit Call Centre of the General Administration of Customs & Excise Duties. This contact centre is available from Monday to Friday from 9.00 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. at the phone number 0257/55.555.
