Online shopping

When ordering items from foreign online stores, in most cases you must pay import duties.

Note: An update of this article is pending. Please note that some terms and/or references may differ from the Movement of Goods Act and the Customs Duty Act that enters into force from the 1st of January 2023.

The fees you have to pay and how you pay them, depend on whether the online store or e-marketplace is registered in the VOEC-scheme or not, what kind of item you are buying and what the value is. 

Read about what applies when the online store is registered in the VOEC-scheme in the link below. 

Below you will also find links to our import calculator and information on customs clearance of shipments from online stores that are not yet VOEC-registered, or from a private person.
