Guide to Sending Parcels to Maldives

Maldives comprises 26 atolls strung across 825 kilometres of the Indian Ocean like pearls on a string. Which makes this nation more than 99% water. And as a result, Maldives is home to important marine habitats that support creatures like endangered whale sharks, threatened sea turtles, 48 types of shrimp, and 1100 species of fish - many of which have fed Maldivians for millennia.

E-commerce in Maldives is still in its infancy; however, 95% of its population are on FaceBook, so it won't take long for Maldivians to apply those skills to online shopping and international shipping.

Information for this page was taken from the Maldives Customs Service and the World Customs Organization.

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 Maldives before shipping any goods.

Types of Shipments

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

When an item with a COO is imported into Maldives, 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 will not be allowed to enter Maldives whereas those deemed restricted may enter, but will require registration with a government agency or a permit.

Prohibited Items

  • Any item or material
    considered pornographic - DVDs, films, magazines, etc.
  • Materials disrespectful or insulting to Islam
  • Any idols used for worship
  • Substances with narcotic or psychotropic properties
  • Firearms and ammunition
  • Explosives

Restricted Items

  • Alcoholic beverages
  • Tobacco and its products
  • Poisons and toxic substances
  • Chemicals like acids
  • Medications
  • Pork products
  • Live plants
  • Radios and other telecommunication equipment

Duty & Taxes

The amount of duty and taxes levied on shipments entering Maldives is calculated using the CIF method, i.e. 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 duty and VAT owed by the recipient.


Thresholds

There is no threshold (also known as a de minimis value) on shipments entering Maldives. This means that all parcels regardless of their value will incur duty and taxes.

However, provided a shipment is sent to a private individual by a courier service for his or her personal use, a duty exemption up to MVR6,000 (about $500 CAD) is allowed.

Maldives 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.
