Postnord Sweden: New Fee to be Levied on Consignments from 3rd Countries from March 1

To all our customers from Sweden,

As per the notice from Postnord Sweden, From March 1, all mail items with a declared value that come from outside the EU Customs Union will have VAT applied to them from the first krona, usually at a rate of 25 percent.

At the same time, a new fee model involving a lower fee than the current SEK 125, including VAT, will be introduced.

A fee of SEK 75 will be charged for consignments with a declared value of less than SEK 1,500.  

For consignments with a declared value of SEK 1,500 or more, the current fee of SEK 125 will still apply. In addition to the cost of the VAT declaration, this will also cover the cost of making a customs declaration.

In the event that the recipient does not want to pay the VAT and the fee for the VAT declaration, the consignment will be returned to the sender. 

Please take a note that the VAT will be on your account. When you order at, please make sure you have already known this.

Thanks a lot for your attention.
