Nigerian Customs Information
When shipping goods to Nigeria, you are legally required to complete and send a customs declaration with your shipment. Whether you’re sending personal effects or a gift, if your shipment does not have a customs invoice attached, it will not make it past your local country border, and you may have to pay return charges to get it back. My Baggage will automatically provide you with the appropriate customs documents for you to complete and attach to your shipment when you send your luggage to Nigeria.
Generally, My Baggage shipments clear customs in a timely manner, free from duties and taxes, as most countries offer a generous duty-free allowance for personal effects. However, as customs processes and allowances differ around the world, we do advise doing your own research into Nigerian customs regulations and quarantine before booking your shipment. Please make yourself aware of any potential customs duties.
