Passar is the FOCBS's new goods traffic system for the digital processing of customs procedures. Passar will be put into operation in several stages from June 2023 and will gradually replace the existing freight applications NCTS and e-dec.

By the end of 2026, all processes related to transit, exportation, importation, special customs clearance and the collection of other levies will be simplified, harmonised and fully digitalised. This is a key objective of the digitalisation and transformation programme DaziT.


The first release (Passar 1.0) will be put into service in several steps from June 1, 2023.
