Important Eritrea Customs Information
General Customs Information
Personal effects are used items that have been in the sender's possession for 6 months or more. The majority of countries allow a large amount of these personal items to cross their borders duty free. Because of this allowance, most Send My Bag shipments are not stopped by customs.
To facilitate a speedy customs process, you must demonstrate to customs that your shipment consists of personal effects. To do so you must complete a short packing list online, with entries to be made in the following format: "2 x Pairs Trainers, 3 x Denim Jeans, 2 x Woollen Top", and so on, rather than as "10 x Used Clothing".
If Eritrean customs find brand new or commercial items in your shipment, you may have to pay customs duties and taxes. If you are sending Christmas or birthday gifts to Eritrea please check with Eritrean customs so you are aware of any customs duties that need to be paid, follow any advice they give you and attach any documents required of you.
Customs processes are not the same in every country so we ask all customers to take a few minutes to check how their personal circumstances and what they are sending will be viewed in accordance with Eritrean customs.
More information can be found on our customs information page.
