Guide to Sending Parcels to Malaysia

Malaysia is a country renowned for its beautiful beaches, tropical rainforests, and its megadiverse wildlife - only 17 of 197 nations qualify for this honour.

But Malaysia is also part of the modern world. Nearly two-thirds of its people use the internet and its capital boasts the world's tallest twinned structure: the spectacular Petronas Towers. And with its middle-income, diverse population, the country's e-commerce market is surging at 8%-plus per year.

With English being Malaysia's second language, doing business there couldn't be easier for Canadians.

Temporary Imports / Exports for shipments to Malaysia

Temporary Imports

Goods may be imported temporarily into Malaysia duty free providing:

  • The items are returned to Canada within 3 months* of their date of entry
  • A guarantee is paid to cover duty charges, which will be refunded when the goods leave Malaysia

* An extension of up to 12 months may be made, but must be applied for to the relevant authorities


Goods that are typically allowed as a temporary import include:

  • Those displayed at exhibitions, meetings, and conferences
  • Those used during a circus, concert, or theatrical performance
  • Equipment required for games and sporting events
  • Equipment used for assessment and testing of machinery, and for research

The conditions that apply to temporary imports are as follows:

  • The goods cannot be exchanged for other items
  • The goods must not be destroyed, sold, or rented
  • The goods must be returned to Canada

Qualifying for Duty & Tax Free Temporary Import

In order to import your goods duty and tax free into Malaysia, 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. More details are shown 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 choosing option 1 or 2, 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, i.e. they undergo no repairs nor are they used in manufacturing
  • Stay no longer than 3 months in Malaysia

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

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

When an item with a COO is imported into Malaysia, 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
Packaging List Infrequently required Required if value exceeds $2,000 per shipment or is a controlled good.
Packing list Infrequently required

No specific form is 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 may not enter Malaysia, whereas those deemed restricted may enter, but with limits to quantities or requiring a permit.

Prohibited Items

  • Drugs and narcotics (this is strictly controlled by Malaysian authorities)
  • Indecent or obscene images in any format
  • Any cloth or textile with any verses from the Koran
  • Pens and pencils that resemble a syringe
  • Any emblem or device that could be used against the interests of the state of Malaysia

Restricted Goods

Duty & Taxes

Malaysia calculates import duties and taxes using the CIF method (the sum of the customs value plus insurance plus freight costs).

CIF Value = Customs Value + Insurance Amount + Freight Costs

By knowing the CIF value of a shipment you will be able to predict the amount of duty and taxes the recipient will have to pay.

Thresholds

A shipment with a value of less than 500 MYR (about $165 CAD) is exempt from duties. This is called the de minimis value.

Currency Malaysian Ringgit - MYR
Duty Exemption
(De minimis Value)
500 MYR (about $165 CAD)
Duty Calculation Method CIF
TAX (SST) 10% (default rate)
5% (reduced rate)
Tax Exemption

500 MYR (about $165 CAD)
Tax Calculation Method CIF

Duties on Imports

Malaysia and Canada are signatories to the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPPTP). Malaysia's current government has not yet ratified the agreement, therefore duties still apply to imports from Canada.

Excise Taxes

Malaysia imposes excise taxes on certain goods, particularly alcohol, tobacco, sugary drinks, mahjong tiles, and playing cards. Details may be found here.

Malaysia 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)
  • Television
  • Jewelry in excess of $500
  • Perishable goods
  • Glass or Ceramic
  • And many more items

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