Important Fiji Customs Information
General Customs Information
Due to most countries offering a duty-free allowance for personal effects, most Send My Bag shipments will not be stopped by customs officials.
Customs normally view personal effects as items that have been in the sender’s possession for at least six months. If you send brand new or commercial items in your shipment, you may be required to pay taxes and duties.
You should bear this in mind if sending brand new items, such as Christmas or birthday presents, to Fiji. You should research beforehand any customs duties you might have to pay, take any advice given by Fijian customs, and attach any documentation required of you.
To indicate to customs officials that you are only sending personal effects, you need to complete a packing list online, which should be completed as follows: "6 x Pairs Cotton Socks, 2 x Linen Skirt, 2 x Pairs Leather Sandals", and so on, rather than as "10 x Used Clothing".
We suggest that all travellers take a moment to see how their personal circumstances and what they are sending will be viewed by Fijian customs officials, given that customs processes vary according to country.
Further information can be found on our customs information page.
