Import duties assessed on household goods

Regrettably, no duty exemption is currently offered by Guinea-Bissau. Your shipment will incur import tax and duty of 41% (1). It’s possible that an additional 40% customs fee will also apply – but this may just be referring to the standard import tax and duty (2). Confirm the exact rate you’ll pay for your specific shipment, by speaking with customs before moving.

Regulations enforced on household goods

Guinea-Bissau requires you to bring your household belongings into the country, no later than six months after you enter. You’re also not authorized to lend to others, get rid of or sell any goods during your time in Guinea-Bissau. Finally, customs mandates that all necessary paperwork be submitted to the destination agent, a minimum of 8 days before your shipment arrives (3).

Documents requested for household goods

In order to process your shipment, customs will need an inventory with the value of your items included. A separate packing list (also with values) is required, and the amounts should be calculated in Euros. You also must show a no-sale attestation, verifying that you won’t sell your items while in the country.

A Certificate of Change of Residence and your passport are also needed, along with your Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill. If you’ll be staying with the same company but transferring into Guinea-Bissau, then a Transfer of Employment written by your company is required (4).

Import duties assessed on vehicles

Duty exemption is also not offered for vehicle imports, and the rate you’ll pay is dependant on the vehicle’s value, engine size and year it was made (5).

Documents requested for vehicles

During customs clearance, you’ll need to submit the vehicle’s registration and title. A purchase invoice showing how much you paid for the vehicle is also mandatory. A valid international insurance policy and the Original Bill of Lading is required as well. This should list the make, model, engine and chassis numbers, engine volume and the year it was made. Finally, customs will ask for your driver’s license (6).

Customs procedures are subject to change, and not all the applicable paperwork and regulations have been listed here. Therefore, it’s imperative that you discuss your impending move with customs, to ensure that your shipment meets all the required conditions.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

  • If you are exporting a car, prepare the documents early enough so as to avoid any delays.
  • Package your belongings using the option that best suits them. In case you have any fragile items, be sure to indicate this.
  • Begin working on your travel documents early enough.
  • Last but not least, an easier move is possible when you hire a reputable mover so you should consider hiring the services of a shipping company.
