Nigeria Customs Regulations Update on Shipping Furniture

Abels have recently been advised by one of our FIDA agents about recent Customs Regulation changes in Nigeria.

Due to previous abuse of Customs Regulations and frequent by-passing of declarations, brand new furniture is prohibited to be shipped to Nigeria in household goods shipments. If new furniture is found in a shipment, this will lead to the total seizure of the container as well as seizure of the whole consignment.

Also note that old and used furniture shipped in quantities larger than a set per room, will attract fines and duties/taxes from Nigerian Customs.

The updated customs regulations should be carefully considered when furniture is being shipped to Nigeria.

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