Required Documents

  • Inventory List
  • Photocopy of Shipper’s Passport

When moving, all ordinary household goods, new and used, are exempted from import tax and duty. But dutiable items include tobacco, cigarettes, and liquors. Nonperishable foods in cans or durable packages may be shipped at small quantities.

Restricted and Prohibited Items

  • Drugs
  • Firearms, ammunition, explosives (Can be imported with only a possession/ dealer’s license from Royal Hong Kong Police Force.)
  • Pornographic Materials
  • Plants, trees, fruits, and vegetables

If you are shipping firearms, ammunition, etc. with a license, ship these separately from your household goods so they do not slow down the shipment at customs.
