With a population of around 28 millions, Peru is a diverse and beautiful country that attracts thousands of visitors every year. While many people living in Peru speak Spanish, other languages are also prevalent including Aymara and Quechua. Peru has many beautiful lakes and for the naturalist, is also home to a wide range of tropical birds, large sand dunes and mountains capped with snow.
If you are thinking about living in Peru for an extended period of time, or you are permanently moving to Peru, you might want to consider hiring a cargo shipping company to ship your personal items and other household belongings.
When you are shipping cargo to Peru, Peruvian customs officials will determine the value of your shipment. The customs duty on household goods imported to Peru is approximately 20% of the value of the items.
It is important to note that when cargo shipping to Peru, all your items will be checked by Peruvian customs officials once the shipment arrives in the country. You must be present when your shipment arrives in Peru and you should provide a detailed packing list either in English or Spanish or both. The list should not contain generalizations or vague wording like for example “miscellaneous” but should carefully detail everything you have shipped in your cargo shipping containers. This will ensure the customs process runs smoothly.
