Customs clearance in Brazil (import of goods and merchandise)

Import Brazil

Handling problems with customs clearance when importing goods and commodities to Brazil are typical. The somewhat cumbersome bureaucracy and the increased import volumes mean that corresponding services cannot be provided with the required speed.

In addition, there is incomplete or incorrect documentation when exporting to Brazil.
This can lead to interruption or suspension if the transport or customs documentation (commercial invoice, B/L, certificates of origin, certificates, etc.) do not exactly match the consignments. This can result in delays, fines and even the loss of the shipment. Therefore, good coordination and agreement between importer and exporter before the shipment of the goods is more than just a requirement.
Allow three to four weeks for the transport of the goods to Brazil. With subsequent import processing this can mean a period of up to two months.
The import declaration (DI, declaracao de importacao), the international bill of lading (Sea-B/L) and the commercial invoice must be available for import customs clearance to Brazil.

Import processes in Brazil are easy to handle

Of course, certain goods and groups of goods also require certificates of origin, inspection certificates, health certificates and an import licence for Brazil. Imports of goods may only be carried out by Brazilian companies authorised to do so. This means that a local import partner is necessary. The Secretria de Comercio Exterior (SECEX) grants permission for the import of foreign goods.

Such a certified company submits the necessary data for import declarations to the electronic foreign trade system SISCOMEX when the goods are declared to customs.
The applicable tax rate for imports into Brazil varies depending on the product / goods group and state.

Additional costs until exemption in Brazil are port handling fees, storage fees and the fee of the customs agent (despachant). In the sum of all amounts, the increase in the value of goods FOB abroad can be up to 100% in some cases.
