Guide to Sending Parcels to Seychelles

The equatorial archipelago of Seychelles hosts a diverse collection of seabird colonies, giant resident tortoises, at least 1,000 species of fish, and dozens of endemic plants. And like their islands, the Seychellois are a multicultural blend of ethnicities and continents who welcome tourists to their beautiful beaches, coral reefs, and forest reserves.

Seychelles's high-income economy allows it to boast having the highest nominal per capita GDP of any African nation. So, it is no surprise that its e-commerce revenue growth is expected to be 20% annually until 2025. And as French and English are Seychelles's official languages, Canadians are its perfect trade partners.

Information for this page was taken from Seychelles's Supplement to Official Gazette, the Seychelles Revenue Commission, and the World Trade Organization.

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

When an item with a COO is imported into Seychelles, 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 on the prohibited list will not be allowed entry into Seychelles; those on the restricted list may enter but will require a permit from the relevant government department.

Prohibited Items

  • Materials deemed obscene or pornographic
  • Automobile parts and accessories
  • Uniforms of a military nature
  • Firearms and ammunition
  • Counterfeit currencies
  • Narcotics and drugs
  • Toxic substances and chemicals (like asbestos, dieldrin)
  • CFC gases (ozone depleting substances)

Restricted Items

  • Wood of any type
  • Foodstuffs, particularly meat, produce, fish, and seafood
  • Plants and plant products
  • Alcoholic beverages
  • Tobacco products
  • Pharmaceuticals and medicines for both humans and animals

Duty & Taxes

Only a few goods will incur duties when they enter Seychelles. Those that are dutiable will have the amount calculated using the CIF value of the shipment, which is 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 before sending it, you will have an estimate of the amount of duty and VAT owed by the recipient.

Thresholds

Thresholds are the amount below which no duty or taxes are collected; this is also known as the de minimis value. For Seychelles, this amount is Rs 3,000 (about $300 CAD).


Currency Seychelles rupee (SCR)
Duty Exemption (De minimis Value) Rs 3000 (about $300 CAD)

IconSeychelles 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.
