Businesses shall submit a transit declaration to Customs for undeclared goods that are transported within the EU. A transit declaration must be submitted also for undeclared goods transported through Finland.

You can submit a transit declaration to Customs online either as a message declaration or via the Transit Declaration Service on Customs’ website.

If your company submits transit declarations often and the declarations concern several goods items, please submit the declarations as message declarations. For using message declarations, you need a message exchange authorisation from Customs. Information on how to apply for a message exchange authorisation is provided on the Customs website.
