How to register a customs declaration for a parcel or a maxi letter?

If you want to send a parcel or a maxi letter to a non-EU country or autonomic regions within the EU, you will need to register a customs declaration for it. If you are sending goods to an exhibition or for warranty repair, for example, the postal consignment needs to be declared as a consignment for temporary export.

FORMALIZE A CUSTOMS DECLARATION FOR THE PARCEL

 

  1. MAXI LETTER

    Maxi letters with a value of up to €355 can be sent with the simplified form CN 22 of a customs declaration. In other cases, form CN 23 should be used.

  2. PARCEL

    Irrespective of the contents of the parcel, formalize the form CN 23 and CP 71 address card for the parcel.

The CN 22 and CN 23 forms and CP 71 address card are available at the post office. Make out the exact list of items contained in the parcel in English, French or another language known in the country of destination. In order to speed up the procedure for the customs declaration, you may also add to the parcel, in a plastic cover, a commercial invoice or a pro forma invoice of the items contained in the parcel.

PARCEL WITH A VALUE OF MORE THAN €1000
 

If you want to send a parcel to a non-EU country and its value exceeds €1000 or a postal consignment with a weight of more than 1000 kilograms, the postal consignment needs to be declared at the Estonian Tax and Customs Board.

For the declaration of the postal consignment, present at the office of the Estonian Tax and Customs Board a commercial invoice or some other document, which gives evidence to the value and the right of ownership regarding the goods to be sent, and also a special permit, if it is required by the law. Then, together with the export customs declaration, go to the post office.

Remember that Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein are not members of the EU. The same procedure that applies for sending parcels to non-EU countries needs to be followed for postal consignments to be sent to autonomic regions within the EU.
