Chile Import Regs.: Courier/Postal shipments

Postby bridgat » Tue Nov 18, 2008 3:34 am

Couriers (e.g. Fedex, UPS, etc) are charged 1% of CIF value for a "verification fee". The funds are used to verify the documents and price quotes. Importers must obtain the services of a customs broker to clear the shipment when the value is US$500 or more. Shipments valued below the above amount can have the courier clear the shipment through customs. There also maybe weight limits on individual shipments.

In addition, there is a 2% airport tax (based on FOB value) charged by the airport authority. We believe this charge is placed on air courier and air cargo deliveries.

However, goods originating in Canada, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Mexico, and the U.S. (under the FTA) are exempt from this tax.

Non-dutiable imports carried by courier or air cargo are subject to the 2% fee on 10% of the FOB value of the shipment. For example, if the import declared value were $100, then 10% of that value would equal $10 and 2% of the latter value would be $.20.

Gifts shipped by mail and not exceeding $50 in value are permitted duty free. Otherwise gifts beyond that limit are subject to the normal duties and taxes.
