Tullisäännöt Suomessa
This section is about bringing removal goods and other goods into Finland.

Removal goods from another EU country

If you move to Finland from the EU customs and tax territory, you do not need to lodge a declaration with Finnish Customs. More information from Finnish Customs

Removal goods from outside the EU

If you move to Finland from outside the EU customs territory, you must clear your removal goods through Customs.

If you have lived outside the EU for at least 12 months without interruption and the removal goods have been in your possession for at least 6 months, you can usually bring your removal goods into Finland free of customs duty and value added tax.

More information from Finnish Customs.

Motor vehicles

No import declaration needs to be given on motor vehicles brought in from the EU customs and tax territory. Motor vehicles as removal goods brought in from outside the EU must be cleared through Customs on arrival in the country. More information from Finnish Customs.

Car taxation and related advice is the responsibility of the Finnish Tax Administration.
