Import duty & taxes when importing into Iran
Import duty and taxes are due when importing goods into Iran by a private individual or a commercial entity. These are calculated on the CIF value, i.e. the sum of the value of the imported goods and the cost of shipping and insurance. In addition to duty, imports are subject to Sales Tax.
Iran applies duties at rates between 4% and 100%, with a vast number of products subject to the highest rate.
Imports into Iran are subject to a standard VAT rate of 9%, levied on the sum of the CIF value and duty. Some goods are exempt from VAT.
Imports by mail of goods for personal use with a FOB value, i.e. product value excluding shipping and insurance, up to US$50 are exempt from duty and VAT.
