Guide to Sending Parcels to Ivory Coast

Ivory Coast, officially République de Côte d'Ivoire, derived its name from its major trading commodity with European powers during the time of the great oceanic explorations. Today, Côte d'Ivoire has a thriving and varied agricultural economy that supports many of its 26 million inhabitants. And the nation serves as an important transit route for its landlocked neighbours.

Côte d'Ivoire has experienced a recent growth of its communications infrastructure and internet market. Combined with a growing economy and a low youth unemployment rate, its e-commerce is projected to grow at 11% annually until 2025. Isn't it time to say Bonjour, to Côte d'Ivoire and all of its neighbours?

Temporary Imports / Exports for shipments to Ivory Coast

Temporary Imports

Goods imported temporarily into Ivory Coast will be exempt from duty and taxes if they remain in the country no longer than 12 months.

Temporary imports may include the following categories of goods:

  • Equipment for repair
  • Commercial samples for display at trade fairs or exhibitions
  • Equipment or goods to be tested or used in experiments
  • Items that require assembly or added labour

Qualifying for Duty & Tax Free Temporary Import

In order to import your goods duty and tax free into Ivory Coast, 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, allowing 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 12 months in Ivory Coast

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

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

When an item with a COO is imported into Ivory Coast, 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 to be shipped to Ivory Coast while restricted goods may enter the country, but have rules that limit the amount of goods or who may send them.

Prohibited Items

  • Drugs and narcotic substances

Restricted Items

  • Sugar
  • Medicines
  • Ivory
  • Pharmaceutical, medical, and health and beauty care products

Duty & Taxes

Duties and taxes on imports entering Ivory Coast are calculated using the CIF method: The sum of the customs value plus insurance amount plus freight costs.

CIF Value = Customs Value + Insurance Amount + Freight Costs

As a shipper, you can predict the duty and taxes owed by the recipient of your consignment by using the CIF calculation.


Thresholds

The customs department of Ivory Coast imposes duty and taxes on all shipments regardless of their value. There are no thresholds (also known as de minimis values) below which charges are not applied.

Ivory Coast 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.
