Default Advice on shipping to Portugal

Hi everyone,

My husband and i are both residents in Portugal (we came residents last year before the dreaded Brexit). Unfortunately, we has to return to the UK and have been here due to Covid. We're now able to move and are looking at shipping our household furniture to Portugal.

I would really appreciate any advice / to double check my understanding of requirements.

I have the baggage declaration form to be completed and sent to the consulate. This seems self explanatory to complete.

There isn't much guidance on the format of the inventory of the goods being shipped - is this a list of all items or can we do the list based on each box / the furniture? Any advice on this would be great.

With the declaration we have read that the goods can be imported duty free (all goods are used and our current household items). Is there any timelines that i may have missed? For example, can we ship duty free even though we've been residents for 6 months?

We understand we will need to be in Portugal prior to the goods arriving, this shouldn't be a problem.

Any other information that you can impart on us would be great.

Thank you in advance!
Helen and Antony

I was told by the people at Direct Transport that the requirements keep changing; so for the latest advice, I advise you to ask your shipping company.
They have people working on customs formalities on a daily basis.
