Presentation of Diplomatic Bag Declaration
The Tax Agency's Customs and Excise Duties Department, in order to facilitate processing, offers airline companies the option to file online notifications of shipments that meet the requirements for diplomatic pouches established in the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.
By using a Telecommunications system, and using the EDIFACT standard, the telematic presentation of Diplomatic Bag shipment communications is possible.
It is necessary for operators to be authorised by Customs to present these notifications.
The telematic transmission of file EDIFACT /CUSDEC is carried out through the Internet, with the only requirement of having an electronic signature that meets the requirements set forth in Order HAP/800/2014. For more information on obtaining and using it, consult here .
It is possible to know the status of the telematic sending of a declaration, as long as it has been received in the Customs information system. To access the enquiry, you must identify yourself using the digital signature. For security purposes, only tax returns filed by the holder of the certificate can be viewed.
The system establishes the possibility of sending the declaration through messages EDIFACT / CUSDEC. The Technical Guide for the preparation of the Diplomatic Pouch Communications message (CUSDEC Messages, with CUSRES response), can be downloaded in PDF format.
