Important Ethiopia Customs Information

General Customs Information

Most countries offer a generous duty-free allowance for personal effects, which are defined as items that have been in the sender's possession for at least six months. It is because of this  that the majority of Send My Bag shipments worldwide will not be stopped by customs.

If your bag is checked by Ethiopian customs and is found to contain brand new or commercial items you may be required to pay customs duties and taxes. If you are sending gifts please check with Ethiopian customs so you are aware of potential customs duties. Follow any advice given by local customs and attach all necessary documentation.

Customs processes are not the same in every country, so please take 5 minutes to check how your personal circumstances and what you are sending will be assessed under the prevailing customs regulations of Ethiopia.

More information is available on our customs information page.

To show customs officials that your shipment is made up of personal effects you will be required to complete a brief non-generic packing list online, entries to be made in the format: "6 x Pairs Cotton Socks, 1 x Straw Hat, 3 x Denim Jeans", and so on, rather than as "10 x Used Clothing".
