Customs limitations and Duty Free Info
Imports are subject to duties and taxes which must be paid before customs will release goods. An "ad valorem" customs duty (a percentage of the CIF value of the goods) is imposed on most goods and "specific" duties (based on the quantity) on certain goods. (The "specific" duties have been as high as 30%) The uniform "ad valorem" tariff of 6% applies to most goods.
Generally, Chile permits duty-free entry of personal belonging to returning citizens and foreign visitors. The goods must fall within the definition of personal goods provided by customs and must either accompany the traveler or within 120 days of his/her arrival.
Samples into Chile are exempt from duties and taxes if the value does not exceed US$30.00. To qualify as samples goods have to be mutilated. The import documentation accompanying the shipment must also be clearly marked "samples".
Gift shipments are acceptable; duties/taxes will be assessed. Gifts and aid to the governments and to charitable and educational institutions which are recognized by the government are eligible for exemption of most customs duties and IVA tax. More information on qualifications for these exemptions is available on the customs website and in Part 0012 of the Chile Customs Tariff.
