Items that require additional inspection are placed aside and the rest are forwarded to the national mail service for delivery.The parcels are scanned at key points throughout the process. Customs has the right to remove any parcel from circulation to examine its contents. A parcel has not legally entered Hungary until it is cleared by Customs.
