Delays in Import Customs Clearances
9.6.2021 Import declarations submitted for goods to be released for free circulation in Finland have been renewed. Due to some technical malfunctions in the implementation of the new UTU clearance system and increasing volumes there is currently a heavy backlog and the processing time at the Finnish Customs is considerably longer than usually.
Delays in import clearances occur especially in cases which for various reasons require manual processing by the Customs. These include mandatory document review, temporary procedures and imports subject to license.
For the time being the processing delay at Customs can be a few days.
We are sorry about the delays and will for our own part do our best to facilitate the process.
