Ship Your Luggage to NIue
Important Niue Customs Information
General Customs Information When Shipping to Niue
If you are only sending personal effects, itis unlikely your shipment will be stopped by customs. This is because most countries offer a generous duty-free allowance for personal effects, which are typically defined as items that have been in the sender's posssession for at least 6 months.
If you are sending brand new items, however, you may be liable to pay customs taxes and duties. This is why it is important that you check in advance to see what taxes you are liable to pay, before you send your items. You should check with Niuean customs and follow any advice given, including what documents to include with your shipment.
If you are sending personal effects you must indicate this to customs officials by completing a packing list online, listing each item in a specific way, so '3 x Denim Jeans, 2 x Cotton Dresses', etc, rather than '5 x Used Clothing'.
Different countries have different customs processes and allowances, so we advise all travellers to take 5 minutes to check how their personal circumstances and what they are sending will be assessed under prevailing Niuean customs regulations.
