Customs

Customer may have to travel to First Port of Entry of the consignment, so if it is a consignment sent to Rio de Janiero via Sao Paulo, customer may be asked to travel to Sao Paulo for Customs clearance. Customer may also need to provide copy of passport, copy of flight ticket or Valid Tax Identification (CNPJ for businesses or CPF for individuals) Consignee may be able to hire an outside broker to clear shipment (courier will deliver after clearance).

The taxation rate is 60% (sixty per cent) over the price stated on the commercial invoice added of the transport and insurance costs if they were not included on the merchandise total price. In the case of the goods imported using couriers, State will add 18% State VAT.

Duties and tax may still be applicable if the shipment is returned or abandoned.

Documents Needed

After you have paid for a shipping service to Brazil, you will be redirected to a page where you can download and print out the relevant shipping labels, i.e

AWB (Courier Air Waybills - barcode) - Proforma or Commercial invoice - Address label.

The above documents are standard for any international shipment.

Please note, if additional documentation is required for the import of any particular item, it is the customer's responsibility to provide them at destination.

Restrictions

Goods travelling by 'Cargo' are subject to different restrictions to those travelling as carry-on luggage.

A shipment to Brazil is deemed unacceptable if: it is classified as hazardous material, dangerous goods, prohibited or restricted articles by IATA (International Air Transport Association), ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) or other relevant organisation. Many items which appear harmless in everyday use can pose danger on air transport and are consequently forbidden for transport.

The following page displays a sampling of common prohibited and restricted goods.

Packing Advice

Your parcel must be boxed and well packaged. This will reduce the risk of damage to any item during transit or any associated automated distribution process.

Please be aware the item is not taken by hand from collection to destination and will visit many sorted facilities on its journey. For that reason, you need to protect the items to ensure they make it from A to B safely.

The following packaging guidelines are recommendations to assist you in packaging your shipment:

You've just got back from the holiday of a lifetime - a tour of South America taking in countries like Argentina, Peru and Brazil. Safe and sound back home you decide you'd like to say thank you to a few people who helped to make your holiday possible. They could be friends who gave you a sofa for the night, strangers who stepped in and helped you when your luggage didn't arrive at the airport and the phrasebook you'd bought along proved useless, or a tour guide who went the extra mile to ensure that your experience of their part of the world was truly unforgettable. You took everyone's details and promised to stay in touch so you could always write and say thank you or, in this broadband-enabled, interconnected world, post a Facebook thank you or send a tweet. But you know that the best way of making plain exactly how grateful you are would be to send a carefully chosen gift to their door.
