Every Package Must Now Include the CPF
Brazil Customs requires any incoming parcels be clearly marked with the recipient’s name, address and tax ID number. For individuals, that’s called the CPF (short for Cadastro de Pessoas Fisicas) and for businesses it’s the CNPJ (Cadastro Nacional da Pessoa Jurídica).
Customs uses the numbers to assess the tax, and requires the recipient to make the duty payment before he/she can collect the parcel. Collecting your CPF before shipping the parcel to Brazil ensures it moves through customs quickly.
So, please note that all shipments into Brazil must be clearly labeled with the recipient’s name, address, and CPF to make it past Customs. If it doesn’t have the CPF, the package will either be shipped-back or destroyed.
