Moving to and from Sweden
When you are moving to Sweden from a country outside the EU, you may be granted relief from customs duty and tax on personal property (belongings) if you satisfy the requirements. If you are moving from another EU country, you do not have to pay any charges to us. If you are moving from Sweden to a country outside the EU, you must declare your belongings in an exportation declaration.
Moving between Sweden and another EU country
If you are moving to Sweden from another country in the EU, you do not need to pay customs duty, VAT or other taxes for your personal belongings. This is because Sweden is a member of the EU’s Customs Union. Additionally, you do not need to submit an import declaration.
Moving from Sweden to a country outside the EU
When moving from Sweden to a country outside of the EU, you must apply to have your personal belongings exported by completing an export declaration. You can do this yourself at a customs office at the border, or leave it to your removal firm or forwarding company.
