Important Algeria Customs Information

General Customs Information

Most countries allow a certain amount of personal effects to cross their borders, without taxes or duty needing to be paid. Personal effects are typically considered to be used items that the sender has owned for at least 6 months.

To demonstrate that your shipment is made up of personal effects, you need to write a packing list, to be completed as follows: "2 x Denim Skirt, 1 x Pair Leather Shoes, 4 x Cotton Shirt", and so on, rather than as "10 x Used Clothing".

If your shipment is stopped by Algerian customs and is found to contain brand new or commercial items, you may need to pay taxes or duty before you can take receipt of your items.

If you are sending gifts please check with Algerian customs so you are aware of likely customs duties, follow advice given and attach all necessary documentation.

Customs processes and allowances do vary by country, which is why we advise all travellers take 5 minutes to check how their personal circumstances and what they are sending will be assessed under prevailing Algerian customs regulations.

More information is available on our customs information page.
