Can import duty be waived on household goods?

Customs offers duty exemption for many (if not all) of your personal household items, if you meet some straightforward conditions. First, you must import these goods on your initial arrival and you must be moving your primary place of residence into the country. Second, your goods must appear no later than three months after you enter Eritrea.
The type of items which are eligible for exemption include appliances like a refrigerator and electrical goods such as a television. Only one of each kind of appliance or electronic item is exempt from duty. Furniture, personal clothing and jewelry, children’s playthings, toiletries, cameras (in used condition only) and silverware are all exempt. You’re even permitted to import equipment or tools needed to carry out your trade or job (2).

Keep in mind that you’ll need to demonstrate transfer of your permanent place of residence to Eritrea – otherwise customs will levy duties on your shipment. If duty exemption is granted, then you won’t be allowed to sell these goods, unless you first pay the import duties which were waived. If you fail to meet this requirement, then you’ll be in violation of customs law – though the penalties for this infraction aren’t specified (1). To learn more, you should contact customs for a full accounting of their policies.

What paperwork is needed for household goods?

The list of required documentation to import household belongings isn’t available. For this reason, you’re once again urged to speak with customs before proceeding. It is clear that you’ll need to satisfy customs agents concerning the transfer of your primary residence into the country – so be prepared to show documentation supporting this fact.

Can import duty be waived on vehicles?

You’ll be pleased to learn that you can avoid paying import duty on your vehicle. To be eligible for this exemption, you need to have owned the vehicle for a minimum of the last six months. You’re also required to have personally used the vehicle for six months before it arrives in Eritrea (3).

What paperwork is needed for vehicles?

It’s likely that you’ll need to show documents confirming your employment, or perhaps proof that you’re a student. Your residency status must also be confirmed, and customs will ask to see your passport. The title and registration for the vehicle will almost surely be required as well. A Letter of Authority issued by SABS may also be mandatory. (4). When shipping a vehicle to Eritrea, odds are that you’ll have to present the Original Bill of Lading for the shipment too.
As you can see, there’s some uncertainty about the paperwork required by customs – as there’s limited information available concerning this question. Therefore, you’re strongly advised to discuss any upcoming vehicle shipments with customs, to avoid any problems during clearance.

In fact, this recommendation holds true for shipments of household goods as well. In addition, you’d be wise to hire a knowledgeable international moving company like A1 Auto Transport, to help you through the clearance process.
