What import duties does Djibouti charge?

If you were hoping to receive duty exemption for your household belongings, then you’ll be disappointed. Even used items have import duty levied upon them, and no exemptions are available. You also have to follow certain regulations, such as bringing your shipment into Djibouti no later than six months after moving there. You aren’t permitted to lend to others, sell or get rid of any belongings while in the country either. Finally, customs mandates that you file all paperwork a minimum of 15 days before your shipment enters port (1).

What documents does Djibouti require?

Your shipment of household goods must be processed by customs, and they’ll need some paperwork to do so. Your passport and visa are required, as well as a full packing list. A separate comprehensive inventory that includes monetary values for all of your items, must also be provided.

If needed in your situation, you must show your Residency Permit and a Letter of Employment (if working for a new company in Djibouti). If you’ll be staying with your current company instead – and are only transferring locations – then a Letter of Transfer must be filed with customs. Finally, documentation showing you’ve been vaccinated for yellow fever is necessary, along with your Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill (2).

What import duties does Djibouti charge for your vehicle?

Unfortunately, the reputable sources consulted didn’t have any information available, regarding import duties for your vehicle (3). For this reason, you should contact customs to discuss this issue, and to determine what fees will be levied on your vehicle shipment.

What documents does Djibouti require for your vehicle?

You’ll need to submit your packing list and the Original Bill of Lading for your shipment. A Certificate of Origin is also required, along with a purchase receipt or invoice (that states the price). A letter to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs should also be supplied, and presumably this will either by a copy or on file with that department. The Ministry of Finance also must sign this document (4).

Customs regulations and requirements are subject to change, and the above list of paperwork and fees isn’t comprehensive. To know for sure what you’ll need in order to bring your household goods and vehicle into Djibouti, it’s best to speak with customs directly.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

  • Packing: With the assistance of a professional mover, ensure that all your valuables are reduced to smaller parts, which are easily manageable.
  • Prepare all your documents in advance: Moving to Djibouti requires that you have certain documents with you that you will be required to present at the country’s point of entry.
  • Hire a moving company: A professional will simplify things for you. Remember they have offered Djibouti International Moving Services for a while and they know every detail.

Why you need a professional moving company when relocating overseas

You need someone to show you how and where to get the documents that are required. A professional will have the right moving equipment for whatever quantity you are carrying with you. They will also help you get an insurance cover, for you and your valuables. This is to ensure that you are fully covered and therefore do not incur losses in case of an accident. Hiring a professional is a way of transferring risk to someone else.
