Important Dominican Republic Customs Information

Customers are currently limited to a maximum declared value of £110, $160 USD, 100€ for shipments entering the Dominican Republic, in order to reduce the chance of delays with customs clearance and additional duty and taxes.

The declared value is for customs purposes only and does not affect the level of Send My Bag Complimentary Cover selected at the time of booking.  Further information is available on our FAQ page.

General customs information

Most countries allow a reasonable amount of personal effects to be shipped into their country duty free, so the majority of Send My Bag shipments worldwide will not be stopped by customs.

Personal effects are usually assessed as used items that have been in the sender's possession for at least 6 months. If your bag is inspected by Dominican customs officials and they find brand new or commercial items, you may have to pay customs duties and taxes. Do keep this in mind if you are sending Christmas gifts. Please check with Dominican customs so you are aware of potential customs duties, follow any advice given and attach all necessary documentation.

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

In order to show your shipment is personal effects, you will be required to complete a brief non-generic packing list online, entries to be made in the format: "2 x Leather Jacket, 5 x Denim Jeans, 3 x Cotton Blouse", and so on, rather than as "10 x Used Clothing".

More information is available on our customs information page.
