Guide to Sending Parcels to El Salvador

El Salvador may be the smallest country of continental America, but it has more than its fair share of big volcanic eruptions and biodiversity.

Notable amongst those include:

  • Izalco - El Salvador's best known active volcano, also called 'The Lighthouse of the Pacific'
  • Home to 100s of species of trees, tropical birds, butterflies, and marine fish
  • Host to six terrestrial ecosystems

E-commerce may have had a slow start in El Salvador compared to its neighbours, but it is forecast to grow at an annual rate of 11% from 2021 - 2025. Combined with 50% of the population using the internet, and climbing steadily, this country should be on Canadians' shipping radar. Not only is the USD El Salvador's official currency, Canada is also home to a significant Salvadoran diaspora.

Information for this page was taken from the Legislative Assembly of the Republic of El Salvador and the Uniform Customs Code for Central American Countries.

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 El Salvador. A COO proves that an item has been produced, manufactured or processed in Canada.

When an item with a COO is imported into El Salvador, 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 identified as prohibited will not be allowed entry into El Salvador. Those deemed restricted may enter, but they may have to abide by quantity limits or other rules.

Prohibited Items

  • Any material in any form that is considered to be against the social, economic, or political interests of El Salvador
  • Any item of any format that is deemed obscene
  • Films that are contrary to good morals, ethics, and customs of the country
  • Drugs that induce abortions
  • Any type of unstamped cigarette paper
  • Narcotic substances
  • Firearms and ammunition

Restricted Items

  • Sugar

  • Air rifles

Duty & Taxes

The amount of duties and taxes on imports entering El Salvador is calculated using the CIF value of the shipment. The CIF value is the sum of the customs value plus insurance amount plus freight costs.

CIF Value = Customs Value + Insurance Amount + Freight Costs

By determining the CIF value of a shipment sent to El Salvador, you will be able to predict the duty and taxes owed by the recipient.


Thresholds

There is no threshold (de minimis value) on goods imported into El Salvador. Therefore, duty and taxes will be applied to all shipments regardless of their value.

El Salvador 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.
