Important Cook Islands Customs Information

General Customs Information

Personal effects are items that have been in the sender’s possession for a minimum of six months. Most countries allow these personal effects to cross their borders duty free, which is why the majority of Send My Bag shipments will not be stopped by customs.

If your shipment is found to contain brand new or commercial items, however, you may be required to pay taxes and duties before your shipment can be cleared through customs.

This is something to be aware of if sending brand new items, such as Christmas or birthday presents, to the Cook Islands. You should find out about any customs duties you have to pay, follow advice from Cook Islands customs officials, and attach any documentation required of you.

To show to customs that you are only sending personal effects, you must complete a packing list online, to be written in the following way: " 5 x Linen Trousers, 1 x Straw Hat, 5 x Cotton T-Shirt", etc., rather than as "10 x Used Clothing".

Customs processes and allowances vary in different countries, so 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 the Cook Islands.

More information can be found on our customs information page.
