Saudi Arabia Duties and Taxes

Duties and taxes only apply on shipments where the value is higher than the threshold value (sometimes known as Saudi Arabia's de minimis value). Depending on your territory or region, or the type of good, there may be some other service fees or taxes.

The Saudi Arabian Customs Office has revised the clearance process. Effective 1 January 2018, all imports will be subject to a 15% VAT (value added tax), based on the total shipment value. Forward.me does not collect VAT and it will not be included on your Forward.me invoice. It is often collected by the Saudi Arabian government via the carrier when your package is delivered. All shipments with a declared value over $266 USD will likely require a formal clearance, meaning the Saudi Arabian government may require additional documentation. Forward.me can often assist with this additional documentation, but it may increase package processing time or result in processing charges.
