Part III:
Special provisions, Customs and other
 
1. Drawinuof customs declarations
 
Customs declarations must contain all the information necessary for the application of duties, taxes and control measures on both importation and exportation. They must state, specifically:
 
–    the name and address of the consignors and consignees;
 
–    the country of origin and of destination of the item;
 
–    a description of the goods contained and the harmonized system code index;
 
–    the gross and net weight;
 
–    the value of the item;
 
–    the signature of the sender or his agent.
 
 
2. Need to insert invoices
 
In order to facilitate customs operations and calculation of the various duties, the insertion of original invoices as annexes to the declaration is compulsory.
 
For all items containing free sample articles for commercial presentation, it is obligatory to insert a Gratis invoice. If no invoice is produced, the value is determined by the customs authorities.
 
3. Need to attest to the origin of the goods
 
Certificates of origin are generally not required.
 
However, it is good to provide one and in some cases the customs authorities may require it too.
 
 
4. Miscellaneous customs provisions
 
Goods imported by post not exceeding US $50 in value, provided such goods are for the importer's own domestic use and are not intended for sale or business or for use in trade, are free of import duty and taxes. This duty free is concerned only items sent by private person to private person.
 
Postal items sent as humanitarian aid are free from all duties and taxes, only if addressed to duly authorized organizations
(eg Red Cross of Croatia, etc.).
 
 
5. Provisions on infringements
 
It is a matter of principle that all postal items imported into Croatia must be declared to Customs where they are opened, examined and closed again.
 
Consequently, a false declaration by the sender is not necessarily a reason for seizure of the items by the Customs.
 
In exceptional cases, when undeclared articles have been hidden with manifest intention of deceiving the official examination, the customs authorities are empowered to seize such articles, in which case neither the sender nor the addressee has any right to any compensation whatsoever.
