Guide for DHL Express Dutiable Shipments to Saudi Arabia

Changes in Customs clearance regulations in Saudi Arabia have mandated new requirements for express shipments.
It is important that the necessary documentation and information is provided with your shipments to Saudi Arabia to ensure that your DHL Express shipments are processed smoothly through customs clearance.

Prior to January 2012 - All shipments up to a value of $13,250 USD are cleared by DHL Express’ broker with the Importer of Record (IOR) specified as SNAS Trading (DHL’s partner).

After January 1, 2012 - As part of revised procedures by the Saudi Customs Authority relating to the inspection of shipments coming through express carriers, shipments will go through these processes.
