Guide to Sending Parcels to Montenegro

Montenegro's name is derived from Italian - black mountain, so it is appropriate that this small country in southeastern Europe is mostly mountainous. But it is also home to a vast region of karst topography and many beautiful beaches on the Adriatic Sea. All of which gives Montenegro a very high level of biodiversity, and home to more different species per square kilometre than any other European country.

The Montenegrin government has considered the digital economy a priority since 2004 when it first passed laws governing e-commerce for its citizens. Recently, COVID-19 further boosted e-commerce activity and revenues are expected to climb at 16% annually until 2025 along with a steady increase of internet shoppers.

Temporary Imports / Exports for shipments to MontenegroTemporary Imports

Temporary importation of goods into Montenegro will be duty and VAT free as long as:

  • They exit the country within 2 years of their entry
  • They remain unchanged save for routine wear-and-tear

Qualifying for Duty & Tax Free Temporary Import

In order to import your goods duty and tax free into Montenegro, 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 in the table.

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 24 months in Montenegro
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

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

When an item with a COO is imported into Montenegro, 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 deemed prohibited by Montenegrin customs will not be allowed to enter the country; restricted goods may enter but will be limited in quantity or require an importation licence.

Prohibited Items

  • Foodstuffs and seeds of GMOs (genetically modified organisms)
  • Potatoes
  • Dairy products (like cheese)
  • Instruments of torture or human cruelty and degradation
  • Illicit drugs and narcotics, and their processed derivatives

Restricted Items

  • Tobacco products, electronic cigarettes and their refill containers
  • Dietary supplements
  • Produce and fresh cut flowers
  • Seeds of vegetables and flowers
  • Tubers and bulbs of ornamental plants
  • Potted and house plants
  • Precious metals - gold, silver, etc.
  • Automobile parts
  • Pharmaceuticals and medical devices
  • Drones

Duty & Taxes

The amount of duty and VAT applied to imports entering Montenegro is calculated using the CIF value of the shipment: the sum of the customs value plus insurance amount plus freight charges.

CIF Value = Customs Value + Insurance Amount + Freight Costs

By calculating the CIF value of your parcel to Montenegro before shipping it, you will have an estimate of the duties and taxes owed by the recipient.

Thresholds

The threshold on imported goods (also known as the de minimis value) is the amount below which no duties or taxes are incurred.

For Montenegro, those values are:

  • Duty - €150 (about $95 CAD)
  • VAT - €75 (about $100 CAD)

Therefore, shipments valued over €150 will be liable to both duty and VAT.

IconMontenegro 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.
