For an estimate of landed costs (duties, taxes and other import fees) for shipments going to India use the free and interactive DHL Express Trade Automation Services (TAS) tool, TAS also provides information on regulations compliance and trade documentation.

All goods shipments to India require Know Your Customer (KYC) documentation to be presented to Customs; otherwise shipments will go into Customs Bond until the documentation is presented. KYC is recognised by the Indian government as a form of identification. Go to to upload your KYC (includes listing of suitable KYC copy document types).

A GATT Declaration is required for shipments valued above INR 100, 000. Evidence of value must accompany the document.

A Letter of Authority is required so that DHL can act on the receiver’s behalf. DHL can keep this on file for future imports.

Duty exemptions may apply by virtue of specific circulars/notifications by Indian Customs. The receiver needs a valid Import Export Code (IEC) number unless the items are shipped for genuine personal use.
