Duties when relocating
If you’re not eligible for duty exemption, then you’ll typically pay a duty rate of 30 - 40% of the shipment’s value (1). Fortunately, according to one reputable source, being granted duty exemption is relatively easy. You’ll need to have owned and used your household goods for at least the last six months. You also must have lived outside of the country for a minimum of 12 months (2).
Paperwork when relocating
Customs will request your packing list, as well as a separate inventory which includes monetary values. Your passport, your lease contract or a purchase contract for a home within the country must also be provided. You’ll need a Power of Attorney for your destination agent and Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill as well. Finally, your Work Permit, visa, permit to stay long-term in the country or proof of residence may be required (3).
Duties for your vehicle when relocating
Though not expressly stated by trustworthy sources, it appears that you’ll pay duty on your vehicle during importation. Exemption is only listed as being possible for diplomats or returning citizens. You should also be aware that vehicles manufactured over 7 years ago, are not eligible for importation.
You can opt to import your vehicle on a temporary basis, though you’ll need to provide a Bank Guarantee to do so. However, since this will be refunded when you take the vehicle back out of the country - it seems that in this case you won’t end up paying any duty (4).
Paperwork for your vehicle when relocating
You must give customs your vehicle’s title and registration, which were issued in your origin country. A license of ownership is also required, and a daily rate of 21% may be charged - though how this applies isn’t specified (5).
Your vehicle must adhere to EURO IV technical standards (at minimum) - and you’ll need paperwork verifying this fact (which must be obtained within the country). Either a purchase invoice or pro-forma invoice that lists the vehicle’s value, must also be presented. Additional details about your vehicle, such as the engine volume, chassis and engine numbers, model, weight and more should also be provided (6).
Additional paperwork and regulations for both your vehicle and household goods apply - so talk with customs to find out what will be needed in your situation.
Tips on how to make your international move easier
Begin your preparations about 90 days to the day of moving. This will give you enough time to attend to everything as you avoid the last minute rush. You will also avoid delays with customs as all the necessary applications will be made on time.
Visa, passport, and residency
To move to Bosnia and Herzegovina, as a US citizen you do not need a visa for the first 90 days. However, you will need a valid US passport which you can apply for through the US Government.
You do need to make arrangements on how to get residency before you move. Getting a residency status might require some formal process of application. You can get more information through the Embassy of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s website.
Working and doing business
After relocating, most people realize that things are not going as they anticipated. At times, the cost of living may be so high that they start to run low on savings. Therefore, before moving to another country find out if you can start a low-capital venture and what are the legal requirements. You can also consider operating your local business remotely from overseas.
Another good idea is to apply for jobs before you relocate. But before you start this process, first find-out if you will need a work permit.
