This is what we know about the customs rules and regulations, when shipping to the Canary Islands.
The Canary Islands is a Spanish archipelago off the coast of northwestern Africa. It is an autonomous community with a population of around 2 million people. While part of Spain and part of the EU, the islands have autonomy over many things including some rules and regulations as they apply to imports and customs and duties. According to FedEx, due to local import procedures, the receiver must clear the parcel and pay any duties and taxes. We cannot handle this for the receiver as we might normally do. This often leads to additional charges and delays delivery. The courier company will be required to reach out to receiver to help them with clearance of a parcel. Normal delivery times are 4 to 7 business days, but expect a few days delay in many cases. For shipments to the Canary Islands the receivers, NIN (Número de Identificación de Extranjeros number) may be required.

However, the Canary Islands 4.5% General Indirect Canarian Tax applies to all shipments.
The Canary Islands is not part of the European Union's free movement of goods arrangement due to local customs policies so all shipments must be Broker Selected Option (BSO), which means FedEx or UPS, will not act as the broker. A broker is required to clear the goods into the Canary Islands. Therefore, the receiver will have to provide the broker's address and telephone number in advance to avoid delays. FedEx will arrange a broker for shipments that arrive in Spain with no broker indicated, but this will likely delay the shipment.
A Commercial Invoice (CI) is required which we supply to FedEx or UPS. The recipients EIN/VAT/NIN number is required for clearance purpose.
