Import Restrictions

Actual import bans only apply to a miniscule number of goods. In some cases, licenses are necessary.

Some goods may only be marketed in Germany if they comply with certain conditions regarding ingredients, materials or technical specifications. In some instances, a specific license may be required. To cite just one example, the import of medicinal products or certain chemicals is subject to specific licensing requirements.

For goods imported from a few countries or by certain individuals, there may also be restrictions imposed by the European Union.

The German customs authority informs in detail about various import restrictions online.
