Will I need to Pay Taxes and Duties?

In most cases, Italian customs allows a one-time duty-free import of goods as part of your international move to Italy, as long as you meet the following requirements:

  • Items have been owned for at least a year
  • You have lived in the country of origin more than 12 months
  • The goods are at least 6 months old and have been used by you

When shipping household effects to Italy, you will need copies of your passport, a detailed inventory list (which your international shipper will ask for), proof of citizenship (if it applies), proof of residence, and a few more. These are the main forms.

If you do not qualify for the duty-free import mentioned above, then expect to pay the standard duties and VAT in Italy. Duties range from 5-20% while VAT is 22% but they vary depending on your status and the condition of your cargo.
