Your household belongings – will you pay import duty?

When importing your household belongings into Brunei, you may be curious if they’ll be subject to import duty or tax. As long as you’ve owned and personally used these items for at least the last 12 months – you won’t be required to pay any duty (1). However, you should know, that if customs finds new items during their inspection – then the entire shipment may be charged import duty (2).

Your household belongings – what paperwork is required?

To get your shipment through customs, you’ll need to provide the necessary paperwork. This starts with your passport and a Letter of Employment. A comprehensive inventory (with values included) and your Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill is also required (3). Your Residence Visa will be requested as well, and your Health Declaration Card (4).

Your vehicle – will you pay import duty?

It is possible to receive duty exemption, but you must request this from customs prior to shipping your vehicle to Brunei. If exemption is granted, you still must wait until you’ve received an Approval Permit, before shipping your vehicle from the origin country. Finally, such exemptions are only extended one time – so you won’t be able to bring in other vehicles without paying duty.

Your vehicle – what are the regulations?

Many detailed regulations come into play, when importing your vehicle into Brunei. For instance, you must be a permanent resident that’s either employed in Brunei or studying there. You’ll also need to have owned the vehicle for a minimum of one year. It also can’t be manufactured more than 5 years ago – and you must be in the country when it arrives and during customs processing.

Additionally, after importing your vehicle under duty-exempt status, you’re not permitted to transfer it to another party for a minimum of 4 years (5). Finally, all paperwork must be filed with your destination agent, a full 7 business days before your vehicle arrives (6).

Your vehicle – what paperwork is required?

Before your vehicle will be cleared through customs, you’ll need to show your passport and Residence Visa. The vehicle’s title and registration (from the origin country) and your Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill are also needed. An inventory that lists your vehicle (and the full contents of the container it was shipped in) must be submitted, along with a valid Letter of Employment (7).

This isn’t comprehensive coverage of this topic – as more documents and regulations are involved for both your vehicle and household goods. You should get in touch with Brunei customs before moving, to discover the specific requirements for your shipments.
