Moving to Brazil – Customs Auditor-Collectors Strike

Abels have been advised though the Harmony Relocation Network about shipments into Brazil.

Harmony Relocation Network has informed us that as from the 22nd May 2017 there is a strike in Brazil of Brazilian Customs Auditors-Collectors. Their strike is starting to affect the main ports and airports. Some customs units have already stopped their activities and others are working in slow operation but they also may stop at any time.

As the strike continues, it is best to check the situation prior to items being shipped, to avoid additional charges while items are delayed passing through ports or airports in Brazil.

For customers moving to Brazil, please call your Abels customer liaison on their direct line or call head office on +44(0)1842 816600 or email
