When sending a parcel or shipment overseas, a shipping invoice is normally required. This invoice should be completed by the sender and attached to the shipment. The invoice must show the names and addresses of senders and consignees, the contents of the parcel, and value of the contents.
The invoice will be used for customs clearance when entering the country of destination. Our staff can assist you in creating the invoice, if required.
There are many documents required for importing into the destination country. However, PEXGO will complete these documents on the sender’s behalf.

Once the documentation process is completed, the shipment is submitted for customs import clearance. If all the documentation is correct, the shipment will be cleared for import.
When an item is imported into a country, an import duty is normally charged by customs. The duty charged is based on a percentage of the value of the shipping invoice and the cost of the shipping added together. Every commodity has a code, and each code will have the import duty percentage listed. PEXGO can advise you in this matter.
Import taxes are charged on the value of the shipping invoice, import duty, and shipping cost added together. The percentage of taxes depends on the VAT rate of the importing country.
