Brazilian Customs Authority: Tax ID Required on International Orders and Shipments
As of January 1, 2020, the Brazilian Custom Authority requires that all international orders and consignments have an identification of the recipient's CPF / CNPJ / Passport Number in order to initiate customs clearance on international orders and shipments. This information should be provided at the time of online purchase and forwarded along with the order. If it is not informed at purchase nor by the sender on the shipment, then Brazilian Post has developed a tool for customers to provide the tax ID via “Track and Trace” or “My Imports” options on its website.
Failure to provide this information may allow importations to be banned, returned, or destroyed in cases where return is not possible.
