Application for EORI number
Swedish Customs is responsible for issuing EORI numbers in Sweden. An EORI number is assigned after application and your business is registered in Swedish Customs national database.
At the same time, the information is transferred to the European Commission EORI database, where customs authorities in all Member States can check the details.
Economic operators established in Sweden, holding at least one valid authorisation issued by Swedish Customs are already registered in our national database and have automatically been assigned an EORI number. Swedish Customs will not send you any notice of this EORI number. The structure of your EORI number is the country code SE followed by your Business Registration Number or, for individuals, your Personal Identity Number – for example SE5512345678.
If you wish to apply in another Member State, you find information on what authority you should contact in National implementation in the different Member States.
How do I apply?
You can apply through the web form or on a paper form.
When should I apply?
You must apply for an EORI number before submitting any customs declarations. Electronic declarations will be rejected if there is no EORI number where this is mandatory.
If your first customs related activity is an application for authorisation or a certification, you can apply for an EORI number and the authorisation or certification at the same time.
