Important Rwanda Customs Information

General Customs Information

Personal effects are items that have been in the sender’s possession for at least six months. Because most countries offer a duty-free allowance for personal effects, the majority of Send My Bag shipments will not be stopped by customs.

If your shipment is found to contain brand new or commercial items, however, you may have to pay taxes and duties.

You should keep this in mind if sending brand new items, such as Christmas or birthday presents, to Rwanda. You should look into any customs duties you might have to pay, take any advice given by Rwandan customs, and attach any documentation required of you. 

To show customs officials that you are only sending personal effects, you need to complete a packing list online, that should be written as follows: "5 x CD, 4 x Fiction Book, 2 x Denim Jeans", and so on, rather than as "10 x Used Items".

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

More information is available on our customs information page.
