The documentation required varies depending on a number of factors, firstly the origin and destination. Each country has their own import laws requirements, so every country will have a unique set of documentation requirements. Generally, you will need something showing the value or sale of the goods (a commercial invoice) at the very least. Additional documentation can be a passport, import customs forms, certificates of origin, packing declarations, personal effects declarations, health certificates etc – a good freight forwarder will be able to guide you through all the documentational requirements for every international freight shipment.
