- Purchase the complete Expat Arrivals Spain Guide (PDF)
Expats planning on shipping to Spain should think carefully before they pack up their prized possessions. Even though Spain has a number of well-respected, efficient ports, shipping is expensive, and the country’s major cities claim both furnished accommodation and plenty of shopping options to purchase reasonably priced items.
It’s advised that expats solicit quotes from multiple service providers before selecting a company.
Expats can import their household items duty-free to Spain, provided they’ve owned the goods for a minimum of six months and they import the goods within one year of securing a residence or work permit.
