Customs Clearance in the Canary Islands

Everything you need to know about customs clearance

The Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Tenerife, La Gomera, El Hierro and La Palma, are EU customs territories but not tax territories. This means that additional regulations must be taken into account. As customs experts, we are happy to support individual and business customers with any customs clearance for the import and export of removal goods or consignments of goods for import and export between the United Kingdom and the Canary Islands.

Advice for companies

How to prepare the export accompanying document (ABD)

Goods must be correctly declared for export at the corresponding customs office. We will be happy to support you in this process.

Filling in the T2LF

The T2LF customs document serves as proof that the goods to be imported are Community goods from the EU. A T2LF customs document is therefore mandatory for all shipments to the Canary Islands.
