Shipping to Argentina
When it comes to the business of shipping to Argentina there are some pretty specific rules and laws that you have to follow in order to be able to fully import your household goods to your new Argentinean home. Do you own handguns, hunting rifles or shotguns or any other type of hunting weaponry (knives or bow and arrows) that you are taking with you? Do you have a pet that you are bringing into Argentina with you? Are you trying to ship your current vehicle or vehicles as well because shipping to Argentina would be easier than buying a car once you get there?
These are only some of the questions that you are going to have to answer when you contact an international hipping and moving company to set up your move to Argentina. The answers that you provide to the agent that you are speaking with will help the agent and their company determine what you will need to do to get all of your belongings through Customs safely and quickly. Those answers will also help them determine what paperwork you will need to provide to them ad also to the Argentinean Customs Department after the process of shipping to Argentina has bee completed.
If you have a pet that you want to bring with you into Argentina because you do not want tot part with it you are going to have to provide these pieces of documentation before your pet will be allowed into Argentina: a Veterinary Certificate stating that the animal is perfectly healthy and the Original Bill of Lading (or Air Waybill). If you really think about why these things are required as part of the shipping to Argentina process you will understand that the officials need to make certain that you pet is not stolen goods and is also not going to bring a disease into Argentina that could cause widespread harm.
The other things that you will need to do are: provide a very detail Inventory List, in Spanish, of each and every item that is being imported into the country during the process of shipping to Argentina so that Customs Officials know exactly what is coming into the country; and you will have to provide adequate information about your vehicle so that officials know when and where you purchased it. You also must have a Pre-Shipment Inspection Certificate, or "Certificado De Pre-Embarque", for each vehicle.
