Transfer permits exceeding the period of seven days may be granted by vehicle inspection sites and Finnish Customs to imported vehicles provided that a declaration of use confirmed by Customs is presented when applying for the permit.
Transfer permits granted on the basis of the declaration of use are necessary, for example, when:
The transfer permit cannot be valid beyond the expiry date of the right of use specified in the Custom’s declaration of use. The validity of the permit and the tax-free use require that a notice of vehicle taxation is issued within five days of the granting of the permit. The temporary handing over of the vehicle by virtue of a 3-month transfer permit for the use of a person other than the issuer of the declaration of use, or a member of his/her family, is not restricted.
