Required documents when shipping to Tuvalu
The documents that you will need when shipping to Tuvalu may vary slightly depending on what you are shipping so it is best to confirm which ones you need with your shipping company. As a rule of thumb, you are going to need a Bill of Lading filled out as well as a Certificate of Origin for your items. You will also need to have the original commercial invoice attached to your package, if applicable. In addition to these, you will want to be prepared for a possible duty, or fee, to be assessed on your shipment which will need to be paid before it can be released for delivery. Technically it is your responsibility as the sender to pay this fee, if applicable, but the recipient may pay it if they are amenable.
