Greece – Update on new customs procedures

29 november, 2017

Hellenic Post – ELTA wishes to provide the designated operators of other Union member countries with an update regarding the delays in the handling of inbound postal dispatches and delivery of items following the implementation of new customs procedures.

For EMS and parcels (CP), the situation has returned to normal.

For letter post (LC/AO), there is still a backlog for inbound mail, owing to customs delays. In cooperation with the Hellenic Post, customs authorities have already taken steps to speed up the process, and the situation continues to improve. However, designated operators are asked to bear in mind that the Christmas peak period is approaching; therefore, the Hellenic Post does not expect great improvements during this period.

The Hellenic Post thanks designated operators for their understanding.
