Transit declaration (T transit and TIR Carnet)

A transit declaration can be lodged when the goods are available for inspection by Customs. The declaration can be lodged using the standard procedure or the simplified procedure (authorised consignor).

The holder of the transit procedure is responsible for lodging the declaration and for the accuracy of the details provided in the declaration.
When the declaration has been accepted and has received an MRN, the declaration that follows transit can be pre-lodged, and it will stand by for the presentation of goods to Customs.
