Guide to Sending Parcels to Senegal

Senegal's capital, Dakar, is Africa's most westerly city and harbour, and has made the country a natural shipping and transportation hub for the region. Less well known, however, is that Senegal is the western anchor of The Great Green Wall - the project to grow a corridor of trees across Africa's Sahel desert all the way to Djibouti, on the Gulf of Aden, gateway to the Indian Ocean.

Senegalese also like to be connected electronically - the number of mobile connections in Senegal is 103% of the population and 46% of them use the internet, which is steadily increasing. All of this is good news for Canadian shippers: French is Senegal's official language while English is taught in schools and spoken in the business and scientific communities.

Repairs

Goods shipped to Senegal for repair may enter the country exempt from duty and taxes providing they are returned to Canada when the work is complete.

Temporary Imports / Exports for shipments to Senegal

Temporary Imports

Goods temporarily imported into Senegal may be exempt partially or totally from duties and taxes provided the items are used as intended and leave the country within 1 year of entry. (This may be extended by application to the Director General of Customs.)

Goods admitted as temporary imports may include items that will undergo further processing.

ATA Carnets

Qualifying for Duty & Tax Free Temporary Import

In order to import your goods duty and tax free into Senegal, you can pick from Option 1 or 2 of the 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 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 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, i.e. they undergo no repairs nor are they used in manufacturing
  • Stay no longer than 12 months in Senegal

NOTE:

  • If the above conditions are not followed, duties and taxes will be charged as though the goods have been imported permanently
  • Your Customs broker can clear goods of a temporary nature (FedEx, UPS, DHL, etc. typically CANNOT clear goods of temporary nature)


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

Permanent/Sold Goods

Shipments of sold goods valued at 100,000 XOF or less (about $225 CAD) do not require a customs declaration; however, all shipments regardless of value will incur duty and VAT.

Occasional Shipper

Even if you only ship sold goods occasionally to Senegal from Canada, your shipment will incur duty and VAT. However, if its value is 100,000 XOF or less (about $225 CAD), then you are not required to complete a commercial invoice.

Regular shipper

If you regularly ship sold goods to Senegal, we recommend you use the services of a Senegalese customs broker.

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

When an item with a COO is imported into Senegal, 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 entry into Senegal whereas restricted goods may enter; however, they may be limited in quantity or require authorisation from a government department.

Prohibited Items

  • Obscene or immoral material
    in any format
  • Drugs, narcotics, etc.
  • Publications deemed subversive and aimed at disrupting public order

Restricted Items

  • Weapons and ammunition
  • Medications
  • Foodstuffs
  • Products made from protected animals

https://senegalcommerce.sec.gouv.sn/ProceduresImportDetails.aspx

Duty & Taxes

The amount of duty and taxes incurred on a shipment to Senegal 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

If you can calculate the CIF value of your shipment to Senegal, you will be able to predict the taxes and duty owed by the recipient.


Thresholds

There are no thresholds or de minimis values on shipments to Senegal. This means that all parcels will incur duty and VAT regardless of their value.


Currency West African franc (XOF)
Duty Exemption (De minimis Value) N/A
Duty Calculation Method CIF
TAX (VAT) 18%

Senegal 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.
