There are no limits to the value of your purchases. But please remember the following rules for the admission of your merchandise through customs:
For courier shipments:
Shipments sent through courier service will have a weight limit of 35 kg per box.
The package may not exceed 100 linear inches.
Small and urgent packages will be sent via courier service for fastest service.
Documents such as general correspondence, magazines, newspapers and catalogs are free in limited quantities. Usually products with low declared values (less than USD $30.00).
Yes. Due to certain special trade agreements in Chile, some products are exempt from certain duties. Please inquire for more information:
* The Free Trade Agreement between Chile and USA, requires that the products be manufactured in USA. If the product has a value up to USD $2500.00 the vendor only has to include on the invoice the text “MADE IN USA”. If the product value is above $2500.00 it is required that the provider attach a certificate of origin to merchandise.
According to international standards (IATA) those goods that are lightweight and high volume, should be calculated with the volumetric weight. If the weight is larger than the volume, the weight will be used to calculate the cost of the shipment. If weight volume is larger than the weight, the weight volume will be used to calculate the cost of the shipment.
Package distribution companies such as USPS, UPS, Fedex, Lasership, ect… offer various options for deliveries such as Next Day Air, 2-3 days Priority service, and ground service (approximately 7 days). Service costs depend on the type of service requested.
All items received in the offices of Expressit in Miami until 10:00am (Monday through Friday) are eligible to be shipped the same day. They are transported by air to Santiago in just 24 hours.
For shipments of greater weight or volume, we offer great economic alternative transportation via Air Cargo. Departures from Miami are currently available several times a week. Another option which may be more economical is transportation via Ocean Freight. Shipments depart from Miami to Valparaiso or San Antonio and take about 15 to 20 days to arrive. Shipments are available weekly.
For those duty-free products, such as correspondence, journals, publications and samples of no commercial value, Expressit processes them to be available the same day.
For goods which their acquisition value is less than $ 3,000.00 our dedicated staff presents the completed documentation to customs for speedy clearance, making the merchandise available the same day the flight arrives.
Those products, whose total value are equal to or greater than US $ 3,001.00 should be processed by a customs broker (which has been arranged with the customer). Expressit will forward them the necessary documentation in order for them to finish the customs clearance process.
If the value of the goods purchased plus the domestic freight in United States to the address in Miami, is $3,001.00 or more, a customs broker must be involved in order to perform the necessary procedures for entry into Chile. Once the duties and taxes have been paid the merchandise is then delivered.
Payments from import duties and taxes are funded by Expressit when the product enters Chile. When the customer receives the product Expressit seeks repayment of the amount paid for this item. If desired they can be paid in advance in Miami.
Each time a customer receives a product in Santiago, we give notice via email or phone informing that the merchandise has arrived and is available for pickup. If delivery is needed, arrangements can be made according to the location for the next business day.
