Important Kuwait Customs Information

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 Kuwait 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 Kuwait 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 Kuwait 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.

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 1 days to process it and release it back to us for delivery.

What can I send to Kuwait? What items are restricted?

Nail varnish, perfume and aerosols are not permitted. If these items are included in your luggage it may be returned to you.

Whilst non alcohol based liquids are permitted, damage caused by leakage is not covered by complimentary cover and therefore only small amounts should be sent. If an x-ray shows liquids of any type security may stop your bag for inspection.
