Customs issues

Since January 1, 1994, the European Union has had a common customs law, according to this, movement of goods within the customs territory of the EU is essentially free. Art, musical intruments and stage décor may be transported within the EU customs territory without having to consider customs formalities.

The transport of works of art, musical instruments and stage décor is more complicated when leaving the customs territory of the EU or when entering the EU from outside its borders. Customs regulations are introduced at different political levels: International and European customs laws, as well as national regulations, are interlinked and accordingly complicated. No exceptions can be expected for the exchange of cultural assets.
