Moving to the Philippines – Customs Authorities Causing Delays

  • News

For customers planning on moving to the Philippines, we have been provided with information from our agents about delays being caused by the Philippines Custom Authorities.

We have been informed the Philippines Custom Authorities have stopped processing key documents that are required for duty free entry of household goods when moving to the Philippines

Shipments currently at the ports in the Philippines are not being cleared for customs and release for delivery creating a heavy backlog and delays.

While no official strike has been declared, there is a heavy backlog and interruption to service.

Shipments currently in transit to the Philippines will also be impacted by the delays.

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