Guide to Sending Parcels to Haiti

Haiti is the most mountainous country in the Caribbean, whose verdant flanks backstop pristine white sand beaches. No wonder Haiti deserves its moniker: Pearl of the Antilles. Idyllic scenery aside, Haiti's strength is its people, who have created a rich and unique culture that encompasses the arts, voodoo, and creole cuisine.

Haiti's geological and economic challenges have made it difficult for Haitians to develop a robust e-commerce activity; nonetheless, 40% of the population is connected to the internet and mobile banking is becoming ever more popular. This all bodes well for Canada's Haitian diaspora.

Information for this page was taken from Haiti's Ministry of the Economy and Finance and the Customs Code of Haiti.

Disclaimer!

While we have made every effort to ensure that the information on this page is accurate, Customs laws and procedures change regularly so it is important to consult a licensed broker in Haiti before shipping any goods.

Types of Shipments

Not all types of shipments are created equal. Shipping a television will require different paperwork, duties, and taxes than shipping an accounting statement, for example.

Shipping Gifts to Haiti

Shipping Gifts

Gifts shipments entering Haiti from Canada will be exempt from duty and taxes provided:

  • The parcel is only for the use of the recipient or his or her family
  • The quantity of goods in the shipment is clearly a non-commercial amount
  • The shipper and recipient are private individuals
  • The goods are considered to be low value

Shipments from Individual-to-Individual

A gift shipment from an individual in Canada to an individual in Haiti will not incur duty and taxes if:

  • The gift is of low value
  • The shipment is small and its contents are low in number, which is clearly a non-commercial quantity
  • The gift is for the personal use of the recipient or his or her family only

Shipments from Business-to-Business

All gift shipments from a business in Canada to a business in Haiti will incur duty and taxes regardless of the value of the gift. (There are no thresholds or de minimis values.)

Shipments from Business-to-Individual

If a business in Canada sends a gift to an individual in Haiti, it will be considered a commercial transaction; therefore, duty and charges will be applied to the shipment no matter how low in value it is.


Gift Checklist
  • A commercial invoice must be included with your shipment
  • The words 'Gift Shipment' or 'Unsolicited Gift' are included on the commercial invoice, even if the shipment is sent at Christmas time (see sample)
  • List the items in the parcel and write the value of each
  • Sending more than one gift in the parcel? Wrap and tag each one individually.

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

When an item with a COO is imported into Haiti, 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


Prohibited goods are not allowed entry into Haiti while restricted goods may enter, but will require prior permission from a government department or they may be limited in quantity.

Prohibited Items

  • Narcotic drugs -
    morphine, opium, etc
  • Firearms and ammunition
  • Weapons of any sort
  • Articles and items considered immoral or obscene

Restricted Items

  • Agricultural products
  • Medications and drugs

https://www.douane.gouv.ht/AGD/code_douanier/text/Article-42.html

Duty & Taxes

The amount of duty and taxes applied to a shipment entering Haiti will be calculated using the CIF value of the shipment. The CIF value is calculated as the sum of the customs value plus insurance amount plus freight costs.

CIF Value = Customs Value + Insurance Amount + Freight Costs

By calculating the CIF value of your shipment, you will have an estimate of the duties and taxes owed by the recipient.


Thresholds

There are no thresholds (de minimis values) on imports entering Haiti. This means that all shipments regardless of their value will incur duties and taxes.

Haiti 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.
