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.
Through the use of a Telecommunications system, and using the standard EDIFACT, the telematic presentation of Diplomatic Pouch communications is possible.
It is necessary for operators to be authorised by Customs to present these notifications.
The telematic transmission of the file EDIFACT/CUSDEC is carried out via the Internet, with the sole requirement of having an electronic signature that complies with the requirements set out in Order HAP/800/2014.For more information on their procurement and use, see here.
It is possible to know the status of the telematic transmission of a declaration, provided that 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 provides for the possibility of sending the declaration via EDIFACT / CUSDEC.The Technical Guide for the preparation of the Diplomatic Pouch Communications message (CUSDEC messages, with CUSRES reply), can be downloaded at PDF format.
