PARCELS TO AND FROM NON EU COUNTRIES

Parcels sent to or received from outside the EU zone are subject to customs inspection. 

When mailing a parcel outside the EU, you will be asked to fill out a customs form and the contents of the package will be inspected.

Receiving a parcel from outside the EU is a cumbersome procedure and requires a visit to the customs office and at least an hour, plus paying hefty customs duties.
