Guide to Sending Parcels to Albania

Though Albania occupies a small corner in the southwest of the Balkan Peninsula, it was ruled for centuries by seven different civilisations from the Illycians to the Ottomans. Bounded by the Adriatic Sea on its west flank and the Dinaric Alps on its eastern border, Albania is a biodiversity hotspot. Which many tourists come to enjoy in addition to the numerous lakes, mountains, and beaches this country has to offer.

E-commerce has had a slower start in Albania compared to other parts of Europe, but like the world over, COVID-19 has been a catalyst for some recent rapid growth for the country that is projected to grow annually at 10%-plus until at least 2025.

Temporary Imports / Exports for shipments to Albania

Temporary Imports

Temporary import of goods into Albania exempt from duties is allowed provided:

  • They are returned to Canada within 12* months of their entry into the country
  • The items are unchanged during their time in Albania (aside from normal wear-and-tear)
  • The process is accepted by customs authorities ahead of time

*An extension of an additional 12 months may be allowed if authorised by customs authorities.

Qualifying for Duty & Tax Free Temporary Import

In order to import your goods duty and tax free into Albania, you can pick from 1 of the 2 Temporary Import Methods listed below.

Each option has its pros and cons. Regardless, each of the following methods requires you to complete a Commercial Invoice (CI). More details below.

Option # Temporary Import Method Risk of paying
1 Commercial Invoice Only (no other documentation is provided) High - if broker cannot clear goods temporarily
2 Commercial Invoice
+
ATA Carnet
Very Low


1. Complete a Commercial Invoice (CI) only


This is the simplest and quickest option. See example.

NOTE: You should be aware that shipping using this method doesn't guarantee that your items will be imported duty/tax free. Not all brokers will clear goods as temporary imports (i.e. UPS, FedEx, DHL) nor is it a guarantee that customs won't charge any duties and taxes.



2. Commercial Invoice (CI) + an ATA Carnet

Completing an ATA Carnet is great option for items that frequently travel in and out of the country. It's also great because once you have an ATA Carnet, it is accepted by 176 countries worldwide making the application process a one-time thing.

In addition to declaring your commercial invoice as a temporary import, you can get an ATA Carnet for the items that are of temporary nature.

ATA Carnets are beyond the scope of the article however, you can find more information here: http://www.chamber.ca/carnet/

NOTE: It is highly recommended to get an ATA Carnet for items that frequently travel in and out of the country and especially so when it is valued over $2,500 USD


In addition to the 2 options listed above, the following conditions must also be met in order to qualify for a duty and VAT free exemption:

  • The goods arrive and leave in the same condition aside for normal wear-and-tear; maintenance and minor repairs are allowed under certain conditions
  • If an ATA Carnet is used, the goods may stay no longer than 1 year in Albania

Temporary Imports Checklist
  • Commercial Invoice clearly stating 'Temporary Import'. This must be written in the General Description section and the Detailed Description of Goods. (see sample)
  • The goods arrive and leave in the same condition, i.e. they undergo no repairs nor are they used in manufacturing
  • Stay no longer than the period listed above
  • Include your ATA Carnet with your shipment (if applicable)
  • Include the expected return date or the date that it was originally received within the country (whichever applies)
  • Any above listed items not listed in this checklist

Permanent Goods / Sold To an individual or business within Albania

Permanent/Sold Goods

Goods sold to someone in Albania that are of low value, i.e. a maximum of €22 (about $33 CAD), will be admitted duty-free.

If a shipment has no commercial value, the duties and taxes owed are calculated by estimating the parcel's value then dividing it by 10. This is valid for parcels with a maximum estimated value of 2,000 TD (about $875 CAD).

Occasional Shipper

If you only ship sold goods occasionally to Albania, for example through eBay, providing the value of the shipment is €22 or less (about $33 CAD), there will be no duties applied to the parcel.

Regular shipper

Anyone who regularly ships sold goods to Albania is recommended to consult a licenced Albanian customs broker.

Required Documents


Shipping packages internationally requires a lot of documentation. This process alone can be confusing and time-consuming. So we’ve narrowed down what documents you might need and ranked them based on likeliness of being needed.

Document Type When? Details
Shipping Label / Bill of Lading Always required This is a label provided by the carrier (UPS, FedEx, DHL, etc.). Always required because the carrier needs to know the parcel's destination.
Commercial Invoice Required for all non-document shipments
For all non-document shipments, you will require 3 copies of the commercial invoice (to be included with your shipping labels). These are for customs purposes and need to be included inside a document pouch outside of the box.

When creating a shipment through the Secureship website, the system will help you create this document automatically.

B13a Required if value exceeds $2,000 per shipment or is a controlled good
A B13a is required if your shipment exceeds $2000 CAD or is a controlled good
and is destined to a country other than the US, Puerto Rico, or the US Virgin Islands

Learn more about the B13a form here.
Certificate of Origin (COO) Infrequently required

Allows a reduced or zero-rated import duty.
Canada has a preferential trade agreement with Albania. A COO proves that an item has been produced, manufactured or processed in Canada.

When an item with a COO is imported into Albania, it will incur a reduced or zero-rated import duty.
Certificate of Insurance (COI) Infrequently required

Shows that the shipment has been insured.
Banks may request a certificate of insurance when providing letters of credit for the goods. Otherwise, it is generally your choice whether to purchase insurance for the shipment.
ATA Carnet Infrequently required

Used to avoid duties and taxes on shipments of temporary nature.
If you ship goods of temporary nature to and from a country, you can obtain an ATA Carnet to expedite the customs clearance process and ensure that anything of temporary nature is not charged duties and taxes.

See Temporary import section
Packing list Infrequently required

No specific form required, but generally includes information regarding:

  • The exporter, importer and transport company
  • Date of issue
  • Number of freight invoice
  • Type and number of packages
  • Contents of each package
  • Marks and numbers
  • Net weight, gross weight and measurements of each package

Prohibited & Restricted Imports


Goods deemed prohibited are not allowed entry into Albania whereas those deemed restricted may enter, but must abide by quantity limits or other rules.

Prohibited Items

  • Narcotics and mood
    altering or psychotropic
    drugs
  • Products from endangered
    plants and animals
  • Fireworks and explosives
  • Firearms, ammunition, and military goods
  • Publications with indecent
    or obscene material
  • Any written material considered harmful to the Albanian republic

    the norms and taste of

Duty & Taxes

The amount of duty and tax charged to a shipment entering Albania is calculated by using the CIF method. The CIF value of a shipment is the sum of its customs value plus insurance amount plus freight costs.

CIF Value = Customs Value + Insurance Amount + Freight Costs

If you calculate the CIF of your shipment to Albania, you will be able to predict the amount of duty and taxes owed by the recipient.


Thresholds

The threshold (also known as the de minimis value) on goods entering Albania is €22 (about $33 CAD).

This means that goods with a value of less than €22 are both duty and VAT free.

Albania Shipping Insurance


You can purchase insurance through Secureship and it is provided by the carrier that will be transporting your shipment.

Each carrier will charge a different amount per $100 of declared insurance. If you indicate that you need insurance for your shipment our system will automatically include the insurance costs for your shipment.

Insurance is great to have in case your package is accidentally lost or damaged by the carrier. But be careful, not everything you ship is insurable. Worse - even if your package contains items that are insurable, if it doesn’t meet the ISTA 3A packaging standard, the insurance purchased through the carrier would not be available to you.

Here are some items that cannot be insured by the carrier:

  • Personal belongings
  • Antiques
  • Artwork
  • Liquids (including alcohol)
  • Televisions
  • Jewellery in excess of $500
  • Perishable goods
  • Glass or Ceramic
  • And many more items

For more information, please see the carrier's terms and conditions.
