Customs & excise online services

Customs declarations and excise documents and declarations are filed using several software applications, developed by the Customs and Excise Administration and provided to operators.

The different applications are grouped in an interactive platform called the eDouane system.

One can connect to the eDouane system in the following ways:

  • via online web access: the operator must have a Luxtrust certificate and must register in the eDouane system
  • or using system-to-system communication via electronic message exchange (EDI Electronic Data Interchange): the operator must apply to the Customs Administration for authorization to access the eDouane system and enable communication between their system and that of the Customs Administration. The use of communication between systems is recommended for operators that have significant volumes of declarations. The data exchanges are secured by LuxTrust certificate servers.

In addition, the TARLUX application provides all information necessary for importing goods to Luxembourg depending on their origin, in particular:

You must have the TARIC code for the goods or their name to perform a search in TARLUX.
For example: TARIC code 0803 90 10 00 or "fresh banana".
