How to import from China to Chile?

May 28, 2024 Chapter 1. Sourcing

Importing products from China to Chile involves several critical steps and considerations to ensure a smooth process:


Identify the products to import and ensure they meet quality standards.


To import goods from China to Chile, you will need to follow certain procedures and pay certain taxes. 

  1. Obtain an import license from the Chilean government.

  2. Find a reliable supplier in China and negotiate the terms of the transaction, including the price, shipping method, and delivery time.

  3. Arrange for shipping and customs clearance. You can either use a freight forwarder or handle the logistics yourself.

  4. Pay the necessary taxes and fees, which may include tariffs, value-added tax (VAT), and other charges.


The specific taxes and fees you will need to pay will depend on the type of goods you are importing and their value. Chile has a free trade agreement with China, which means that many goods are subject to reduced tariffs or no tariffs at all.


However, you will still need to pay VAT and other charges. I would recommend consulting with a customs broker or trade specialist to get more detailed information on the specific taxes and fees you will need to pay.


Hiring a certified intermediary can significantly reduce the risk of fraud and ensure compliance with all regulatory requirements
