You can complete import declarations manually and change their status to Completed or invalidate them and change their status to Invalid. You can later undo the manual completion or invalidation of an import declaration.
Customs messages that are received following a manual completion or invalidation are processed as usual, and the status of the import declaration is updated accordingly. Example: If a transaction was manually set to Invalid and then a release is subsequently received from the customs authorities, the status of the declaration changes to Released.
