As of 1 May 2010, pursuant to subsection 3 (2) of the Regulation No 20 of the Minister of Finance of 17 March 2010 “Procedure of traveller's customs formalities, traveller's declaration form and instruction for completing thereof” the travellers are permitted to declare their goods orally from the abovementioned date.
However, the customs authorities have the right to request the travellers to lodge a written customs declaration, if the information declared orally needs further specification. There is still an opportunity for travellers to lodge either a written declaration on a paper-based carrier or complete it through the electronic information processing systemComplex.
In order to lodge the traveller's written declaration it is possible to get a form from the customs officials at performing the customs formalities, or through the website of the Estonian Tax and Customs Board. Traveller's declaration (PDF) available on the website of the Estonian Tax and Customs Board may be filled in right on the screen and subsequently printed and lodged at performing the customs formalities.
Upon completing the boxes of the traveller's declaration through the electronic information processing system Complex, the travellers have to proceed from the Regulation of the Minister of Finance and instructions on entering information to the electronic information processing system provided for in subsection 37 (8) of the Customs Act.
