Spain - Update on IT issues

17 December, 2021


The designated operator of Spain, S.E. Correos y Telégrafos, asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that the technical issues relating to the exchange of information with the Spanish customs administration have been partially resolved. Therefore, the customs clearance procedure once again applies as normal for items destined for mainland Spain and the Balearic Islands.

However, the technical issues persist for items destined for the Canary Islands (postcodes 35XXX and 38XXX), Ceuta (51XXX) and Melilla (52XXX). Therefore, delays are still to be expected with regard to customs clearance for items sent to these destinations.

Correos would also like to take this opportunity to remind other designated operators that items sent to these destinations must be accompanied by ITMATT and the CN 22/CN 23 customs declaration forms.
