Guide to Sending Parcels to Saudi Arabia

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is perhaps best known for its gas and oil reserves, which have made it the richest country in the Middle East and ranks it 18th in the world.

However, less well known is that the olive tree is indigenous to Saudi Arabia and it has the world's largest olive plantation - 5 million trees!

Also noteworthy is the rapid rise of internet use from 2% of the population in 2000 to 68% today. Combine that with a very young demographic: 50% below the age of 25 - 17 million strong, Saudi Arabia is a country booming with eager and internet savvy consumers.

Information for this page was taken from the Saudi government's General Authority of Zakat & Taxes and Imports & Exports Guidelines.

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

When an item with a COO is imported into Saudi Arabia, 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.

Duty & Taxes

Import duties and taxes in Saudi Arabia are calculated based on the sum of the Customs Value, Insurance Amount, and Freight costs (shipping costs). This is known as the CIF value.

CIF Value = Customs Value + Insurance Amount + Freight Costs

Using the CIF Value, you can predict how much duty and tax the recipient must pay to import goods to Saudi Arabia.

Thresholds

A shipment with a value of less than 1,000 SAR (about $370 CAD) will be exempt from customs duty. This is called the de minimis value. There is no de minimis value for VAT; all shipments will incur VAT.

Certain products will incur excise taxes. They include soft drinks, energy drinks, sweetened drinks, and e-cigarettes. Details can be found here .

Saudi Arabia 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.
