Forwarded household effects
When you already have residence in Aruba and your household effects with exemption arrives later from abroad, you are entitled to claim the exemption of custom duties. You will have to claim the exemption for payment of customs duties within a maximum period of 1 years after you were registered in the civil register of Aruba (Censo). If the period of forwarding is too short, you can apply for an extension of the custom duties by submitting a motivated request to the Commissioner the Customs Department (Departamento di Aduana).
The entry in Aruba of your household effects with exemption, does not have to be done in 1 time.
You can also choose to do this in multiple shipments. This means that the last consignment within 12 months after you have registered in the civil register of Aruba (Censo), must be established and that you have done your declaration within this time limit, at the Customs Department (Departamento di Aduana).
