Guide to Sending Parcels to Tanzania

Tanzania faces the Indian Ocean in East Africa and can claim some notable geographical facts, such as Africa's highest and lowest points, and other remarkable natural occurrences. They include:

  • Mt. Kilimanjaro - highest mountain
  • Lake Tanganyika - deepest lake
  • The Serengeti - home to the great annual wildebeest migration
  • The Zanzibar Archipelago - formerly known as the Spice Islands

While e-commerce remains in its infancy in Tanzania, both e-business and m-commerce (via mobile phones) are growing. On the plus side, the country has been experiencing strong economic activity and English is the language of foreign trade for Tanzanians. So, for Canadian shippers, trade with Tanzania can only improve.

Permanent Goods / Sold To an individual or business within Tanzania

Permanent/Sold Goods

Shipments of sold goods with a small value (less than $5,000 USD - about $6,000 CAD) may enter Tanzania without undergoing a Pre-Shipment Verification of Conformity assessment.

Occasional Shipper

For goods sold and shipped to someone in Tanzania via e-commerce, the Tanzanian government has simplified the process for small parcels of relatively low value.

Therefore, shipments of sold goods with a value of less than $5,000 USD (about $6,000 CAD) may enter Tanzania without undergoing a Pre-Shipment Verification of Conformity assessment.

Regular shipper

If you regularly ship sold goods in large, high-value quantities, we recommend that you consult a licenced Tanzanian customs broker. This is because the goods may require a Pre-Shipment Verification of Conformity (PVoC) assessment.


A PVoC is applied to products such as:

  • Furniture
  • Foodstuffs
  • Used items
  • Electronics and electrical devices
  • Toys and sports equipment
  • Textiles

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

When an item with a COO is imported into Tanzania, 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 the Tanzanian authorities will not be permitted entry to the country. However, if an item is declared a restricted good, its entry may require a special permit or licence, or be limited to a specific quantity.

Prohibited Items

  • Narcotics
  • Illicit drugs
  • Plastic bags
  • Used bedding, for example pillows
  • Unprocessed tobacco
  • Mineral ores

Restricted Goods

  • Tobacco
  • Foodstuffs
  • Medications, pharmaceuticals
  • Cosmetics
  • Ammunition

Duty & Taxes

Tanzanian customs authorities calculate the amount of duty and taxes on a shipment by using its CIF value. CIF is the sum of the customs value plus insurance costs plus freight fees.

CIF Value = Customs Value + Insurance Amount + Freight Costs

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


Thresholds

Goods shipped to Tanzania will incur duty and tax regardless of their value. This means that there are no threshold values, i.e. a value below which no duty or tax is charged.

Tanzania 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.
