The OPMAS Quick Guides

Get the essence of the two importation alternatives in a quick way
We do proudly introduce these Quick Guides after many requests to present the two importation alternatives in a different way.

The Quick Guides is covering the typical cases:
1) where an aircraft is owned/operated by a company or legal entity and used for private and corporate purposes
2) where an aircraft is operated commercially by international AOC / Part 135 charter certificate holders

Full importation is mainly for EU-established entities as very few non-EU entities meets the requirements in the UCC in relation to real establishment. Full importation grants free circulation and a lot of privileges but does also come with a lot of potential liability and includes procedures which continuously must be handled correctly.

Temporary Admission is only for entities established outside the EU and comes with some limitations and no-gos.

The case description is based on the EU Customs Code (UCC) and various EU working papers. This is in our opinion the correct interpretation of the regulations but all EU member states have not necessarily implemented everything at present.

The Quick Guides will continuously be updated so you might want to check them with intervals.

Anyway, please let us know if you miss any specific scenario or information and we will do our best to update them accordingly. If you want to know more: Read our review “About aircraft importation” and see our introduction video.
