P&O Ferries Update - Channel Customs Documentation

We are experiencing a high volume of vehicles being refused entry to France and delayed at the Port of Calais, due to incorrect paperwork being presented at check-in. To avoid this as much as possible, here is a reminder of what you need for a smooth check-in of your vehicles:


  1. Import Declarations with an Import MRN number/barcode - Required for scanning by French Customs at Dover
  2. UK Export and Safety & Security declarations, submitted via the French ICS (Import Control System)


  1. Export Declaration with an Export MRN number/barcode - Required for French customs
  2. GMR ID - only required if the goods are under Transit (T1 or T2 document) - Required for UK Customs
