When should a declaration not be filed?

You are NOT required to file a declaration with Dutch Customs for liquid assets if you:

  • Are arriving in the Netherlands directly from one of these countries or regions, or
  • Are travelling from the Netherlands to one of these countries or regions.

So are you not leaving the European Union? Or are you not leaving the flight or ship on which you entered the EU? In that case, you do not need to file a declaration for liquid assets.

Please note!

Are you travelling on a ship in a fixed scheduled service directly to another country or region of the European Union? Example: Hoek van Holland (the Netherlands) to Harwick (Great Britain). In that case, you even do not need to file a declaration.
