Important Angola Customs Information

General Customs Information

Due to the significant duty-free allowance for personal effects granted by many countries, the majority of Send My Bag shipments worldwide will not be stopped by customs,

Personal effects are used items that have been in the sender’s possession for at least 6 months. Brand new items in their packaging would not necessarily be considered personal effects, even if you bought them for your own use.

If your bag is checked by Angolan customs and is found to contain brand new or commercial items, you may need to pay customs duties and taxes. If you are sending gifts to Angola, please check with Angolan customs so you are aware of any customs duties, follow their advice and attach all necessary documents.

Customs processes and regulations are different depending on the country. We, therefore, advise all travellers to check how their personal circumstances and what they are sending will be assessed under Angolan customs regulations.

You can find out more at Send My Bag’s customs information page.

To indicate to customs that you are sending personal effects, you need to fill out a brief non-generic packing list online, to be completed in the following way: "2 x Pairs Leather Shoes, 3 x Linen Shirt, 4 x Cotton Trousers", etc., rather than as "10 x Used Clothing".

When a bag is stopped by customs for any reason (missing documentation, prohibited contents, commercial contents or further information required) Send My Bag™ records how long customs hold it for. Our historical statistics for this route indicate that if the customs authority stops your bag they will on average take 11 days to process it and release it back to us for delivery.
