Shipping Regulatory Update

The 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympic and Paralympic games will take place in South Korea from February 9 to February 25 and March 9 to March 18, 2018 respectively.

Shipments brought into South Korea for Pyeongchang Olympic/Paralympic purposes are subject to Special Exemption Procedures (SEP), which gives exemptions on duties and taxes. There is no need to apply for SEP for goods for personal use that are valued under USD150 as these are tax exempt.

According to the official guideline by the Pyeongchang Organizing Committee for the 2018 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (POCOG), only the official logistic supplier, Hanjin Transportation (Hanjin), offers SEP on duties and taxes at an additional charge.

Customers who ship Olympic and Paralympic-related materials to South Korea should indicate “POCOG SEP APPLY” on the consignee section of the air waybill and commercial invoice of their shipments. This is a requirement by POCOG to apply for SEP and helps us identify applicable shipments.

Upon arrival of applicable shipments, FedEx will contact recipients for confirmation and forward applicable shipments to Hanjin for SEP customs clearance and domestic delivery. The SEP-related costs will be charged directly by Hanjin, and FedEx will not be able to refund any portion of shipping charges for those shipments

From February 1 till March 18, 2018, FedEx Express is unable to transport any shipments to the Olympics/Paralympics restricted areas in South Korea as the only the official transportation supplier is permitted access. FedEx provides consignees with the option to receive their shipments outside the restricted areas without an additional charge. FedEx will directly contact the consignee in Korea before a shipment’s delivery and provide detailed information about how to receive the shipment outside the restricted areas.

The Customs Administration, Ministry of Finance of Taiwan amended the "Regulations Governing Customs Clearance Procedures for Air Express Consignments". Effective 1 January 2018, the de minimis amount for import low-value duty-free consignment will be NTD$ 2,000, down from NTD$ 3,000.

If you have any questions about the regulatory changes, please contact your Sales Representative or our Customer Service Hotline.

Towards making Malaysia a regional e-commerce hub, the Ministry of Finance has made an announcement in Malaysia’s 2018 Budget to increase in de minimis value of imports from RM500 to RM800. Effective immediately, importation goods will be exempted from duties and/or goods services tax (GST) with the following conditions:

De Minimis Value of Import
Duties and Tax Exemptions Entitlement

Below RM 500

  • Exemption from Import Duties & GST
  • No submission of K1 form is required
From RM501 to RM800
  • Exemption from Import Duties Only
  • GST is chargeable
  • Submission of K1 form is required

If you have any questions about the new regulation, please contact your Sales Representative or our Customer Service Hotline.

Effective July 1, 2017, Korea Customs Service (KCS) will apply the formal entry process on any import express shipments to South Korea that have an incomplete consignee address or incomplete telephone number on customs documents, regardless of the declared value. The formal entry process will take at least one day longer for customs clearance than the informal entry process, which is normally applied to express shipments valued less than USD 150 (or USD 200 from the U.S.).

In order to avoid delays for your shipments to South Korea, please include an accurate and complete consignee address and telephone number on your air waybill and/or commercial invoice.
