Points to remember

Address and labeling

You have to write the address clearly and in a way that can be understood in the recipient country. You should always write the ISO country code before the postcode. More information about ISO codes (opens in a new window).

Envelope and packaging

The consignment must have an envelope or other packaging that provides it with sufficient protection. An envelope or other packaging is not required if sending a rectangular card weighing at least 150 grams/square meter.

Are there any restrictions on what I can send?

You can basically send whatever you want, if it complies with the following restrictions:

In the case of air transport

Pursuant to the 2010 EU Directive, shipments transported by air have to be X-rayed to comply with air safety rules. If the X-ray does not show the content, the consignment will be shipped using other modes of transport, such as rail or road. If that is not possible, it will be returned to the sender.

Sending consignments to countries outside the EU

When sending goods to countries outside the EU, you must enclose special customs documents with your shipment. More information about customs procedures outside the EU.

Customs information

The Customs defines and charges the customs duty, taxes and fees that are applicable in conjunction with the import and export of goods. This involves an additional cost for you and in some cases means that your shipment is opened and checked. Consignments containing goods that are transported outside the EU also have to have a pro forma or commercial invoice sent together with the goods, in addition to transport documents. Invoice information shall be sent via email to Original invoices shall be written in English and at least three copies produced, each signed by hand. More information about customs documentation.
