SAD customs management is the control where shipments leaving or entering Spain from countries outside the European Union, the Canary Islands, Ceuta and Melilla go through.
We take care of formalising the SAD document you need so that you can prove the exit or entry of your goods.
When handling your correspondence, you should know that all shipments entering Spain from a country outside the European Union or coming from the Canary Islands, Ceuta and Melilla, will be subject to controls by Customs. Even goods bought over the Internet will be subject to this control process, as well as the payment of customs duties.
Remember that if you are going to receive an international shipment, you are obliged to inform yourself about the goods that are restricted or prohibited in Spain, as well as to present the necessary documents to allow their entry into the country.
Imported goods may be subject to different taxes and customs duties depending on their content, value and other legally considered factors. These amounts must be paid by the shipment's recipient in order to collect the packages pending customs clearance.
Certain items may be restricted or prohibited, depending on national legislation and countries of destination. The person sending the shipment is responsible for finding out about import and export conditions and for providing the documents required for departure from or entry into the country of destination. However, Correos offers you the advice you need to send or receive your shipments.
On the other hand, importing into the national territory of goods from third countries may be subject to security controls, depending on the type of goods, beyond the formalities that must be carried out at Customs in order to deliver the shipment to your home. They may also require payment of taxes required by law.
If your company exports goods by post, you can choose to have Correos carry out the import and export procedures as your representative before Customs.
Parcel destined for the Canary Islands, Ceuta and Melilla or outside of the European Union (EU) may be subject to certain customs procedures before they can be exported, for reasons of international security, in accordance with current customs legislation. Certain additional information may be required for these types of shipments that enables the customs procedures to be carried out more swiftly, and makes it easier to track the items.
Likewise, all postal items with goods from the Canary Islands, Ceuta and Melilla or countries outside of Europe, are subject to security checks at the border, as well as certain import procedures to release the items from customs and deliver them to your home.
