Import is the transport and purchase of goods from abroad to the mainland. As the Netherlands, we import products, mainly because some products are not available in our country or because the products are much cheaper in other countries. The goods are then imported by plane, land or sea.
But it’s not permitted to import everything. An import permit is required for this. Everything that’s imported to the Netherlands is checked by customs to see whether it is allowed and whether everything has been declared.
That’s why it is wise to contact with an intermediary who has knowledge of the ethnic market. For Mediterranean sea products you can contact Arca Products.
