I am leaving the Netherlands
Leaving the Netherlands with money, products or animals without surprises?
Examples of goods that may not simply be brought in/exported:
- Do you have € 10,000 or more worth in cash or securities (liquid assets) with you? (Declare!)
- animals and plants
- cultural goods (art and antiques)
What cannot be imported and exported?
Please check with the local Customs of your transit and destination for the regulations. On the website of the World Customs Organization (in English and French) you will find links to websites of customs of many countries.
I live outside the European Union (EU)
Are you taking goods with you from the Netherlands and you do not live in the EU? You can reclaim the VAT you paid in the Netherlands. Read more: Reclaiming VAT on export.
