Import Clearances

When importing goods into Ireland from outside the EU, customs declarations must be made. However, there are many regulations that must be followed. For example, your goods will need a customs declaration unless it meets what is called the low value threshold which is 22 euro. As well, some goods are subject to restrictions, some being prohibited entirely from entering the country. Along with this, most goods will require payment of duty or VAT in order for them to be released into circulation in Ireland.


At Irish Shipping & Transport Ltd, we have the experience needed in completing import clearances for clients ranging from standard entries to more complex and detailed entries.

Export Declarations

Irish Shipping & Transport Ltd uses AEP, which stands for Automated Entry Processing System, to complete export declarations electronically. As is the case with import clearance, there are defined regulations which must be followed when exporting goods from Ireland.


We have the experience to know which goods are completely prohibited from being exported, as well as which goods are subject to higher restrictions or require a licence.

Document Preparation Services

At Irish Shipping & Transport Ltd, we are here to help with all of your document preparation needs. We are able to advise you on the documents required for your shipments to clear customs, as well as provide those documents for you.
