Importa Fácil


What is Importa Fácil?

It is a new service implemented by SUNAT, which allows importing or receiving postal consignments from abroad through national postal service company quickly and simply.

Who can access it?

Natural persons or companies importing or receiving postal consignments, such as purchases or gifts from abroad for a value up to US$ 2000.00 American dollars.

How does it work?

If a natural person or company imports or receives the consignment through a national postal service, the process will be easy. Once the consignment arrives in Peru, you will be notified. If item or merchandise contained in the consignment has a value up to US$ 200¹, you do not need to do Customs procedures and need to pay import taxes.

However, if the value is higher than US$ 200 and up to US$ 2000, you could pay import taxes².

What are the benefits?

It is quick:

For the purpose of reducing clearance times, SUNAT has established a unique control in the Air and Postal Customs Intendency and has implemented an electronic system for dealing with your Importa Fácil Declaration (DIF)

Likewise, if it is a consignment with a value up to US$ 200¹, no Customs procedures need to be carried out.

It is simple:

Now, taxes can be paid in any authorized banks by presenting the DIF which can be downloaded for free from SUNAT website (www.sunat.gob.pe) and which contains all your consignment information: status, taxes to pay or notification.
