When should Customs receive my manifest latest/ What is the deadline for my manifest?

Customs should receive the manifest, the next working day after the vessel’s departure. Also updates should be received the next working day. Vessel which depart on Friday, Saturday or Sunday can add 1 extra working days. The time of vessel’s departure is not considered. You can find the Dutch public holidays here.

If the deadline will be missed, we recommend sending the incomplete manifest and contact Customs the same day with an explanation: Douane.drh.maasvlakte.kwaliteit@belastingdienst.nl.

Example 1
Ship departure is Tuesday – Customs should receive the manifest Wednesday latest

Example 2
Ship departure is Friday, Saturday or Sunday – Customs should receive the manifest Tuesday latest

An overview of the deadline during holidays can be found under ‘Downloads’ at the top of this page.
