I work for a company that supports charities by donating free office/school furniture and supplies. We are hoping to send a container of desks, tables, chairs and supplies to three schools in the Dominican Republic.
I understand there can be a lot of bureaucratic processes to navigate in organizing a shipment such as this.
For example, we want the duties for importing these items to be waived as they are a donation. From a previous experience of shipping a container to Peru, we learned there are specific government agencies that charities need to be registered with in order to have these fees waived. I was wondering if anyone has any information about the government agencies that charities need to be registered with or if you could direct me to this type of information.
Thanks
