Here’s why you have been inspected
One of Swedish Customs’ tasks is to prevent goods from entering and leaving Sweden illegally. Our inspections are necessary to prevent smuggling of narcotics, weapons, child pornography etc.
People with nothing to hide also have to be checked. We hope that you understand this.
If you have any questions about a customs inspection or if you want to make a complaint, call Swedish Customs +46 771 520 520. Ask the operator to connect you to KUNO, the customer ombudsman (weekdays 08.00 to 16.30). If you wish to submit a written complaint, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
or a letter to:
112 98 Stockholm.
