Items that are “prohibited” or “banned” cannot be imported to Rwanda, and will not be shipped by MyUS. We check all shipments for prohibited items, and if we find any, we can help you return them for a refund. These are some of the items that are banned from import to RWA:

The list of prohibited and banned goods can change or be modified at any time. Please visit Rwanda’s official customs website for updates.
Items labeled “dangerous” or “restricted”, can many times still be shipped. These are often common items that you wouldn’t think might be dangerous or cause customs issues, such as nail polish and perfume, but they require special packaging, handling or permits. We are one of the only international shipping companies that can ship these items.
