Buenos Dias Amigos, I am shipping our personal household furniture from Miami to Peru in a 40 ft container. Our home is in Northern Peru and Paita is the closest port. Everything in the states arranged quickly with the shipper and the container to send the container. Now comes the Peruvian Gauntlet.
The Peruvian government has a special "Ley de Returno" which says if a Peruvian citizen is returning to Peru they may send their personal (Used) belongings to Peru and pay no import tax. The shipment will be done in my Peruvian citizen wife name and number.
Here are the problems:
First I will need a Port Agent to receive the container. I can't seem to connect with one in Paita
Second The Miami shipping agent has just told me that personal household containers can not go to Paita. He said the Peruvian law is that personal household must be received in Callao. Apparently if the container was for commercial purposes it could go direct to Paita.
Please respond if you have experience with this or if you can recommend a shipping agent in Peru to process the delivery.
