Cigar Shipments to Canada

Most USA based cigar retailers will not ship products to Canada due to the complexity, legal requirements, cost and additional overhead associated with developing and managing the entire process. Doumitt Cigar is committed to our customers and we want to give you the opportunity to purchase and enjoy your Doumitt Gold Cigars and products.  We hope our Canadian customers and neighbors enjoy their cigars. The below information it required to be reviewed and acknowledged to complete your order.  You will also receive an email from us requesting a confirmation of your order prior to Doumitt Cigar shipping your order.

Canadian Customs

Doumitt Gold Cigar will comply with all customs declaration documentation laws for tobacco shipments from the US to Canada. Doumitt Cigar will not misstate or under-declare the contents or value of any package. Any customs duties, taxes, and all affiliated fees imposed by Canada must be paid by the recipient you the buyer.

Doumitt Cigar will record the actual cigar count and NET weight of the cigars in your shipment on the customs form. This extra step will record the accurate weight for the Canadian Customs officials to accurately calculate any excise taxes based on the total cigar weight and not the weight of any wooden boxes or packing material. Additionally, Doumitt Cigar will include a detailed packing sheet inside the package as well one in a shipping envelop affixed to the outside of your shipment; these additional steps may reduce your fees and may prevent or reduce the time the package is held in customs for inspection.
