The transit procedure enables you to transport goods through one or more countries without having to pay duty and tax. You must provide a guarantee in order to ensure that duty and tax are paid in the event that the transit operation is not ended properly.
Entry and exit summary declarations
You have to send pre-arrival and pre-departure information to the customs authority for all goods entering or leaving the EU, according to EU legislation. The purpose is to protect the EU from dangerous goods and to meet the increased security requirements in world trade. The information should be sent in the form of entry and exit summary declarations.
