You are moving from the Netherlands

Are you moving from the Netherlands to another country? If so you may need to complete Customs formalities.

I am moving from the Netherlands to a non-EU country

Are you moving to a non-EU country? If so, you will need to file an export declaration for your household effects with Customs. You must also hand in an inventory list of the goods that you are taking with you.

Please note!

There may be special rules for:

  • cars and motorcycles (BPM: refund for export)
  • specific products and domestic animals
  • dogs and cats
  • counterfeit articles
  • endangered species
  • animal products
  • weapons, munitions and fake weapons
  • narcotics
  • cultural goods (such as art and antiques)

Rules for specific products and domestic animals are given in the section: Special products and domestic animals.

Do you have any specific questions about cars and motorcycles? If so, call Tax Information Line Cars. For all other questions, call the Customs Information Line.

I am moving to another EU country

Are you moving to another EU country? If so you will generally be able to take your household effects with you without having to file a declaration with Customs in the Netherlands and the other EU country. Take note of the special rules given in the yellow insert above.

What customs formalities are there in the country of destination and transit?

Dutch Customs cannot tell you which customs and other formalities you need to complete in the country of destination and/or transit. You will therefore need to make enquiries with the authorities of the country of destination and/or transit. Or ask your removal company.
