The payment of the DUA, other documents necessary for the fulfilment of the required customs formalities for goods Exchange operations, applied by carriers, thus acting as customs agents and in the end more expensive shipping costs. Same goes for Ceuta and Melilla, which also require the DUA, also apply a substitute tax VAT, the IPSI.
