Corona crisis - the extension of the time limit to reimport cultural goods


Did you export cultural goods with an authorisation? Further to the corona crisis, it is not always possible that the goods return in time. The date specified in the authorisation cannot be met due to the amended rules and regulations for air cargo and freight traffic. You may apply for an extension of the authorisation to the Central Import and Export Office (CDIU).

CDIU and the Government Information and Heritage Inspectorate advise you to apply for an extension in a timely fashion which means that you can continue to comply with the obligation of reimportation.

This is how you apply for an extension of your export authorisation

Send an E-mail to CDIU:

Please state the number of the export authorisation in your application. We will send you an authorisation as soon as possible together with a new date by which the goods must have returned to the Netherlands.
