Does anyone have recent experience clearing customs in Lisbon with a DIGITAL baggage certificate? I have been trying to send a container from the UK via Lisbon to Madeira. The container will need to clear customs in Lisbon however my forwarding agent in Lisbon states tha I am likely to be charged taxes and duty unless we can provide a Paper baggage certificate with stamp even though the digital version from the consulate in London is a legal document. The consulate refuses to issue a paper copy.
