Guidance on other procedures: diplomatic goods

Do not detain or open diplomatic bags and mail (a diplomatic bag may comprise several packages).

Allow them to be exported without examination or customs documentation.

Motor vehicles accompanied by the privileged person may also be exported without documentation.

Unaccompanied diplomatic goods should broadly follow the ‘non stat’ procedure and you should allow them to proceed without examination.
