exporting personal belongings in container to Europe

Postby Schmurgel61 » Sat Feb 24, 2018 9:02 am

Hi to all,
after 19 years in Cambodia i'm thinking of leaving and sending all my accumulated personal belongings in a container back home.

It seems my collected statues (wood/stone) and other cultural carvings etc need to be checked by the Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts, before i can export them.

Has anybody gone through this process and what was the time frame and the cost ?

Also, were you charged export duties on your personal belongings by Customs and what were the handling fees involved.

Thanks for any constructive help !

Europe is a pretty big place, so best to try and narrow it down to a country if possible to get more constructive feedback.

Most European countries will ask for certificates the wood used comes from sustainable managed forests. That might be a bigger problem than the Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts.
