Regardless of a parcel’s origin, the Ordinary Clearance will be applied to goods sent to COMPANIES/LEGAL ENTITIES, to any parcel that contains goods subject to BORDER SAFETY CONTROLS, and to parcels that Correos cannot dispatch to Customs because they LACK A VALID INVOICE (for instance if the importer Tax ID number is missing, the value is zero, etc.).
The Ordinary Clearance will be applied to goods sent to COMPANIES/LEGAL ENTITIES, to any parcels sent to individuals that contain goods subject to BORDER SAFETY CONTROLS, and to any parcels that cannot be dispatched to Customs BECAUSE THEY LACK AN INVOICE or because the invoice contains an ERRONEOUS TAX ID NUMBER.
In this case you will receive a Aduana Aviso de llegada (148 Kb) from Correos, informing you of the steps that need to be taken to release your parcel and receive it at your address once all the necessary customs procedures have been completed.
In these cases you can choose either of two options for sending the parcel to Customs.
1. Name Correos as Indirect Representative to the Tax Office by following the steps below from your home:
a) Complete and sign the Aduana Aviso de llegada (148 Kb). Correctly indicate your contact information (especially your email address for a faster procedure, telephone number and Tax ID number). If the importer is a company or legal entity, the delivery notification must be signed and stamped with the COMPANY SEAL.
b) Attach the commercial invoice or proforma invoice.
c) Send the documentation to firstname.lastname@example.org or deliver the documentation in person at any of our post offices in Ceuta.
Once Correos receives the documentation, it will dispatch the goods to Customs. Correos will deliver the parcel to your address in return for receiving payment at that time for the Correos fee for DUA management, and if you are signed up to the instant payment system you must also pay the import IPSI tax.
2. You can contract the services of another Customs Agent, or carry out the customs procedures yourself.
For Correos to deliver the parcel to you, the following documentation must be provided to Correos: if you decide to CARRY OUT THE CUSTOMS PROCEDURES YOURSELF, you must provide Correos with the 090 form signed by the Treasury Ministry as well as the invoice stamped before Customs. Otherwise, if you decide to contract a Customs Agent other than Correos, they must provide the 090 form and Release Form to Customs.
Notwithstanding the above, Customs has the authority to hold parcels with goods and apply any controls it considers necessary for different criteria than those indicated here.
