Export permits

In order to be able to export goods to foreign countries as an exporter, you need to be in possession of an export permit.

Companies, as well as private persons, can apply for an export permit. The application must be sent by e-mail to the Ministry of Industry, Labour, Trade and Energy with the following information:

  • Name, address and contact information of the company or person applying.
  • A description of the products and associated product codes to be exported.
  • For companies exporting foodstuffs, the approval number from the foodstuff authorities, as well as the production site must be stated.
We recommend that you apply in good time before the products are to be taken out of Greenland.
