What if my parcel doesn't have the necessary information to perform clearance?

If the parcel is lacking some information, you will receive a letter from the customs clearance service of bpost within two days. You can also see this immediately in the My bpost app or on Track & Trace. You can upload the missing documents there. The quicker you do this, the faster your parcel can be cleared through customs. In that case, the handling period is extended until you send the additional information. If you do not answer this request for additional information, we will return your parcel to the sender after 14 days.

Customs duties, VAT and any other fees (like anti-dumping duties and environmental duties) are calculated during clearance. As the recipient, you must pay these in advance via the My bpost app or via Track & Trace. You will receive an email, text message or letter that requests payment.
