Greece – New customs procedures
Hellenic Post - ELTA, has informed us that since the end of June 2017, new customs procedures under a new memorandum of understanding with customs authorities have been implemented.
These new procedures affect both international and domestic mail carrier and delivery.
Hellenic Post will be acting as a direct representative of customs authorities. The new customs procedures, including the use of new informative systems, will facilitate and improve customs clearance time.
However, the implementation of these new procedures will require an adjustment period. It is reasonable to assume that during this period, there may be some delays in the handling of inbound postal dispatches and delivery items of subject to customs clearance.
Hellenic Post thanks designated operators for their understanding.
