Duties when bringing your belongings into Ecuador

It is feasible to receive duty exemption, but you must meet all of customs regulations to do so. You must have an Immigrant Visa or a Non-Immigrant Work Visa (which is good for more than 12 months). You also must enter the country at least 2 weeks before your shipment arrives. If your shipment reaches Ecuador before you do – then you’ll have to pay import taxes.

Other regulations also apply, such as the need for your shipment to enter Ecuador no later than 60 days after you do (1). Due to the complexities involved with clearing Ecuadorian customs, working with a qualified international moving company like A1 Auto Transport is your best course of action.

Paperwork when bringing your belongings into Ecuador

The filing requirements for your shipment are on par with the regulations – that is to say, they are also extensive. You must give customs a Letter of Employment that’s good for a minimum of one year. A Verification Certificate from an inspection company within Ecuador is also required.

The ANEXO II Form must be filled out and given to customs, though you may need to fill out ANEXO I or III depending on your situation. A Migratory Certificate obtained from the Migration Police in your city of residence within Ecuador is also mandatory documentation. Quite a few additional forms are also needed – so check with Ecuadorian customs for a full list (2).

Duties when bringing your vehicle into Ecuador

It appears that duty exemption is only reserved for those with diplomatic status and returning citizens (and even then certain conditions apply) (3). Therefore, you should be prepared to pay the usual duty rate – which is 65% of the vehicle’s CIF value (4).

Paperwork when bringing your vehicle into Ecuador

If you’ve decided to go ahead with importation of your vehicle, you’ll need to have a vehicle inspection certificate. The vehicle’s purchase invoice and an Import License are also required. Finally, it seems that a separate Import Permit is also mandatory – and you can obtain this from the Ministry of Finance (5).

You shouldn’t rely solely on the above discussion of the import process – as more forms and regulations will have bearing on your shipments. The most prudent approach is to speak with Ecuadorian customs, so you’re certain that you’ve fulfilled all the necessary import requirements.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

The following tips can help you have a smooth process while making your move:

  • Conduct plenty of research while searching for the moving company. Gather as much information on firms that provide Ecuador International Moving Services as you can and especially those that do so within your budget.
  • Familiarize yourself with rules governing shipping to your destination country. Relevant authorities such as the US Department of Transportation (USDOT) have useful information
  • Packaging of your goods in a way that allows for easy storage and movement is important. In case there is a fragile product, package and label it well.
  • Prepare your documents and present them as and when required for processing.
  • Liaise with the moving company and provide them with all necessary information that relates to your move. Seek guidance and information from them whenever you need to do so.
