Foreign flagged boats in Portuguese waters

Recently the Portuguese authorities have been asking EU flagged boats to not only present a VAT declaration, proving that VAT has been paid in the full, but yachts are also required to have on-board a so called T2L document (*).

In this case a very strange request, which also surprises officials in other EU states, as a T2L document is only valid for a period of 90 days and is not used in the context the document is meant for.

Whether the Portuguese T2L requirement will be upheld is the question, as formal protests are being submitted.

(*) The T2L document is a customs document used in the European Union as a proof of the Inter-European community character of the export / import. The exporter, importer and the country the shipment is loaded from and delivered to have to belong to the EU member countries in order for this document to be issued. The T2L document is certified by the customs authorities of the country the products are loaded from and the importer needs to receive it in order to start the import procedure.
