Consignments to private individuals or companies without customs credit with Swedish Customs are cleared with immediate settlement.
This means that duty and VAT must be paid in advance before the consignment can be cleared through customs and delivered.
- For clearance for private individuals, the individual’s social security number is required
Swedish Customs carries out regular checks and may ask for additional documentation. Once this is accepted, the goods are released and can be delivered.
