What is the procedure for shipping perfumes? Is there an additional cost?


Due to government restrictions for the safe transport of dangerous goods by air considered as hazardous (perfumes, nail polish, sprays or aerosols whose content is equal to or greater than 550ml) the Dangeorus Goods Safety Management Act was created and requires an additional tax payment for this concept.

You can transport cosmetics and perfumes with Aeropaq. The chart below outlines what you can expect to pay in tariffs for said articles, in accordance with the Act and with the package’s weight:

  • From 0 to 3 pounds, it will have an additional cost of US$5.00
  • From 4 to 9 pounds, it will have an additional cost of US$10.00
  • From 10 to 20 pounds, it will have an additional cost of US$15.00
  • From 21 to 30 pounds, it will have an additional cost of US$20.00
  • From 31 to 40 pounds, it will have an additional cost of US$25.00
  • From 41 to 50 pounds, it will have an additional cost of US$30.00
  • From 51 pounds, it will have an additional cost of US$35.00

It is important for you to be aware that the transport of 5 or more cosmetic items might be considered as a wholesale import by the DGA, and special permission from the Department of Public Health may be required.

Please be advised that the shipment of this type of merchandise is done every Friday. Items must be received in our warehouse in Miami before 2:00 P.M. on this day. We suggest you consider this when placing your order, especially if you plan to make a gift on a specific date.

Contact our Customs Department by calling 809.237.6727 if you have any questions.
