Important Samoa Customs Information

General Customs Information

Given that most countries allow a significant number of personal effects to be shipped free of charge, i.e. without incurring taxes and duties, the majority of Send My Bag shipments worldwide will not be stopped by customs.

Personal effects are generally considered to be used items that have been in the sender’s possession for at least 6 months. New items still in their packaging will not necessarily be considered personal effects, even if they were purchased for your own use.

If your bag is checked by Samoan customs and brand new or commercial items are found, you may need to pay customs duties and taxes. Brand new items include Christmas gifts or birthday gifts, as well as souvenirs. Please check with Samoan customs so you are aware of potential customs duties, follow their advice and attach all necessary documentation.

Customs processes and regulations are different depending on the country. We, therefore, advise all travellers to take 5 minutes to check how their personal circumstances and what they are sending will be assessed under Samoan customs regulations.

You can find out more at Send My Bag’s customs information page.

In order to demonstrate to customs that you are sending personal effects, you need to fill out a brief packing list online, entries to be made in the following non-generic format: "3 x Pairs Training Shoes, 1 x Denim Jacket, 6 x Cotton Trousers", etc., rather than as "10 x Used Clothing".
