Important Chad Customs Information
General Customs Information
If you are sending gifts to Chad, you should be aware that you may need to pay customs takes and duties. Shipments containing personal effects are typically allowed to pass through customs with no additional cost. Brand new or commercial items, however, may incur taxes.
Personal effects are items that have been in the sender’s possession for at least six months. To show customs officials that you are only sending personal effects, you need to complete a packing list online, that should be written as follows: "2 x Cotton Shorts, 4 x Linen Blouse, 3 x Pairs Leather Shoes", and so on, rather than as "10 x Used Clothing".
Before you book in your collection you should research beforehand any customs duties you might have to pay, take any advice given by Chadian customs, and attach any documentation required of you.
Customs processes and allowances do vary by country, so we advise all customers to take 5 minutes to check how their personal circumstances and what they are sending will be assessed under prevailing Chadian customs regulations.
More information is available on our customs information page.
