Customs in Luxembourg
When your parcel arrives in Luxembourg, it will have to pass through Customs. The process is really straight forward, very similar to other countries given that they try to adhere to the same set of laws put forth by NATO. Customs has the right to inspect every package or shipment that comes into the country, but they typically do not search every single one. The Customs department will also assess a duty, or tax, upon your parcel if it exceeds the threshold for declared value. The percentage that Luxembourg charges for its duty is just about 12%. On top of the duty, you may be assess a VAT, or Value Add Tax. There are duty calculators on line that can help you get a ball park figure of what to expect in fees before you ship to Luxembourg.
Tracking your shipping to Luxembourg
It is a smart idea to have a tracking number affixed to your parcel before shipping it to Luxembourg. This way you can keep an eye on it from a far as it makes it's way to its destination. The fee for doing so is really quite nominal and often times comes with the option of getting insurance on your shipment as well. Both items some consider add ons but that just make sense to give you that peace of mind when shipping so far.
Required documents when shipping to Luxembourg
The documents that you will need when shipping to Luxembourg can vary based on what it is that you are shipping and how you are shipping it there. You will generally need a commercial invoice when shipping commercially, a bill of lading and a certificate or origin for the shipment. From there the Customs department will assess your fees that will be due and may have you fill out additional paperwork based on this transaction.
