Customs Clearance FAQs

What is Customs Clearance?

Customs clearance is the act of taking goods through the customs authority to facilitate the movement of cargo into a country (import) and outside the country (export).

How is Duty calculated in Zimbabwe?

Customs Duty in Zimbabwe is levied on imported goods in terms of the Customs and Excise Act [Chapter 23:02], whilst Excise Duty is levied on certain locally manufactured goods, and other imported goods falling under the Excise Tariff even if they are entered under Trade Agreements. Applicable rates of Customs and Excise Duties are set out in the Customs Tariff Handbook, which is published in the form of a statutory instrument.

What are the Customs Clearance Procedures in Zimbabwe?

Importers are encouraged to engage the services of professional clearing agents because of the complexities of the valuation system and the Harmonised System of classification of goods.

How is duty calculated?

Duty is calculated on the basis of Cost, Insurance and Freight (CIF) value of the imported goods up to the point of entry into Zimbabwe. Insurance and Freight inside Zimbabwe is excluded from the Value for Duty Purposes (VDP). The CIF value of the imported goods is an aggregate of the cost of goods, insurance, freight and any other charges incurred outside Zimbabwe.
