VAT Exemptions

Exemption from Customs Duties

As a diplomat, you are granted exemption from all customs duties, taxes and related charges for the removal of your household goods and vehicles. The exemption is obtained using the Form 136F.

If the imported goods are transferred to somebody who is not entitled to an exemption, the customs duties will become payable. Wine and alcohol can be imported duty-free as long as they stay within the annual quota of the mission.
