Goods to declare

If you have more than the permitted duty-free allowances with you, you must declare the goods to the customs. Goods intended for commercial or trading purposes must always be declared regardless of their value. This also applies to goods subject to restrictions (e.g. narcotics, weapons, ammunition and protected plant and animal species, parts thereof or goods produced using such species).


How to get your export certification:

  1. If you wish to transport dutiable goods in your check-in luggage, please have a baggage tag affixed to the bag at your airline's desk.
  2. Then take the bag to the customs office. Dutiable goods in your hand luggage can be presented directly at the customs office.
  3. The customs office will issue an export certificate. Please present:
    - the goods you are exporting
    - your passport or other travel document
    - your plane ticket dated for the current date
    - your export documents such as invoices or duty-free checks. Your export documents must bear your name and address
