Required documents when shipping to Faroe Islands
The documents you need when shipping to the Faroe Islands may vary based on what specifically you are shipping. But as a rule of thumb, you should have a Bill of Lading and a Certificate of Origin filled out for all shipments. You will fill out a declared value of your items which the Customs department will use to assess a duty if it is valued at above a certain threshold. If you are trying to ship certain restricted items, like some live plants for example, then you will need to obtain prior permission and a permit to do so and have them affixed to your shipment for review at the border. Failure to have the proper paperwork in order when shipping can and will cause delays in your goods getting delivered to their recipients. If you have questions on what to fill out, check with the Customs' department in the Faroe Islands or with your shipping company.
