We are going to ship our goods from the US this winter. To do so and be exempt from paying any export taxes, we are required to obtain a baggage certificate that is requested at the consulate. For the cars it is necessary a separate baggage certificate request. All these certificates would need to be forwarded to a shipping company.
Any international shipping company can create a list of items to be shipped. This list can be provided to the consulate in order to obtain the certificates.
Both certificate can be requested before CEF appointment, just right after receiving a visa, but the container should be shipped only after you get your residency permit at CEF.
Goods can be shipped no later than 12 month after a residency permit is issued (aka your CEF appointment).
