When ordering from eBay, Amazon, or other Vendors, notify US Belize Express with a copy of the purchase receipt followed by a copy of the shipping receipt. All items purchased together are not ship together; knowing what has been shipped prevents mistakes and overcharging in Customs. Customs Brokers/Agents assess charges based on the documentation provided.
Personal Items: When shipping personal items such as used clothing or tools, etc.; create a packing list “Used personal items” and give a Garage/Fire sale value.
Pets and Livestock: Anything having to do with animals and their, feed, medication etc. must be arranged in advance with BAHA. BAHA permits $50.00 – prior notification is necessary.
Medications: Some medications and supplements need to be cleared with the Department of Health.
Hazardous Materials: Hazmat requires special packaging and fees for what they deem to be hazardous materials; once item is deemed to be Hazardous, a fee will be assessed in the U.S. and you will be notified before shipping. You would be surprised at what they deem to be Hazmat – perfume is a good example.
