Important Suriname Customs Information

General Customs Information

Personal effects are viewed as items that have been in the sender’s possession for a minimum of six months. Such items are usually allowed to cross most countries' borders without incurring customs taxes or duties.

However, if your shipment contains brand new or commercial items, you may be required to pay taxes and duties before your shipment can be cleared through customs.

If sending brand new items, such as Christmas or birthday presents, to Suriname, you should be aware of the possibility of incurring charges. Before shipping, you should find out about any customs duties you have to pay, follow advice from Surinamese customs officials, and attach any documentation required of you.

To indicate that you are only sending personal effects, it is essential that you complete a packing list online, to be written in the following way: " 5 x Linen Trousers, 2 x Cotton Dress, 3 x Cotton T-Shirt", rather than as "10 x Used Clothing".

We strongly advise all travellers to check how their personal circumstances and their particular shipment will be assessed in line with the customs regulations in force in Suriname. These may be different from other countries you have visited.

More information can be found on our customs information page.
