    We are hearing about brand new regulations for household goods entering Costa Rica.  Shippers need to provide original invoices for ALL household goods, even items that they have owned for years.  Is this true?

    Good morning Heather
    only new items require original invoices/receipt.

    If you're having any issues please let me know.

    thanks

    Hello Heather, greetings from Allianz Moving in Costa Rica.

    Information given about original invoices for all household goods even if they are used, is not true.   If client is importing new items within the shipment, invoices are required for these new items, but not for the used ones, just imagine looking for an invoice of your grandma's rocking chair!!
    Any doubt you may have about customs regulations in Costa Rica; please do not hesitate to contact us back.
    Have a nice weekend
