I am planning to bring an airpod that I bought in Finland to Poland for a friend as a gift. I have the bill and also the packaging is still intact. My question is Do I need to declare or pay any customs at the Poland Airport? I tried to find this exact info, but unfortunately couldn't find any.

No, since Finland and Poland are both in the EU single market / customs union and there are no customs duties between members.

You can use the blue channel on arriving in Poland, signifying to customs that you arrived from a EU country, as opposed to green/red when arriving from outside the customs union.

In general, you don't declare items on the customs, even if you travel from outside the EU, provided that

  • the import is occasional in nature and non-commercial (you don't intend to sell the items)
  • the items are not restricted or banned for imports (artwork of historical value, drugs, guns, etc.)
  • the total value of your imported items is within the allowance (which is 430 euro per traveler for Poland)

    Just to clarify, it’s the total value of the items which counts, not the value of each.

  • @jcaron Exactly. I already said "items", not "item", but I'll add "total" to clarify. Nov 3, 2021 at 12:46

    This is correct but very confusing as an answer to a question about travel between Finland and Poland. Even if another answer already covers it, you should also address intra-EU travel and do a better job of distinguishing the two. Incidentally, €430 has nothing at all to do with Poland, it's an EU-wide threshold and only applies when flying (not by land).
