Customs information when sending a parcel to Germany


Before the UK left the EU's single market and customs union, a customs invoice was only needed when sending a parcel outside of the EU. However from 1st January 2021, a customs invoice is now needed when sending parcels to EU countries too (including Germany).

If you aren't familiar with this process, don't worry it's quick and easy to do. Our booking form will gather all of the information needed to generate a customs invoice on your behalf. Once you've paid for your parcel delivery, the label and 5 copies of the customs invoice will print off - simply attach to your parcel.

Duties and taxes may also apply when sending a parcel to Germany. Any outstanding duties and taxes will need to be paid by your recipient before the parcel can be delivered to them.

HM Revenue & Customs has more information on tax and customs considerations for Germany.

It’s your responsibility to ensure your parcel’s contents are allowed into Germany - failing to do so may result in extra charges, the parcel being returned or possibly even destroyed. Avoid this by making sure you don’t send anything on the restricted or prohibited list. You should also take care to package the parcel carefully.

UK restrictions when shipping to Germany


As with all deliveries outside the UK, there may be certain restrictions around what items you can and cannot send. Therefore you should check the contents inside are allowed into Germany.

We advise our customers take a look at the current restrictions on shipments on the German Customs website to ensure compliance with the items that can’t be sent. Some examples of items you can’t post include:



Illegal and dangerous


Food of animal origin



Foods of non-animal origin


Rough diamonds
Unsafw foods Weapons and explosives Products from endangered species

*Please be aware that we also have our own prohibited items list, in addition to country-specific restrictions.

Sending Food to Germany


Whilst you can send food to Germany, you should be aware of a few restrictions:


  • Food MUST have a shelf life of at least 6 months
  • Anything homemade or not in the original manufacture packaging will not be accepted
  • Food MUST contain a food label, listing the ingredients
  • Any food that has been opened, tampered will be prohibited

How to package parcels to Germany


Although Germany doesn’t seem far from the UK, we still advise you take care with packaging, especially when you are sending fragile items by courier. Your parcel will travel through a number of depots with automated sorting machines so be sure to pack your items well and use cushioning material inside your parcel to help protect the contents from damage.

We’ll transport parcels from 0.5kg up to 25kg in weight, 80x80x80cm max in size. We recommend you use a strong and sturdy outer box when sending your package and don’t overfill it, regardless of the dimensions of your parcel. For further advice, take a look at our handy international packaging guide for tips.

How safe will my parcel be?


Sending a parcel with DHL Parcel UK means you’ll have access to DHLs global network – DHL are also one of the biggest and most trusted couriers in the world. When you send with us you get full access to our online track and trace tool, and can manage your delivery in just a few clicks. We obtain a proof of delivery on every International shipment and also provide £50 contents cover as standard, on every International parcel you send. You can even upgrade the level of cover on your parcel up to £1000 if you are sending more valuable items.

We will provide you with a one hour collection window for one of our DHL Parcel UK drivers to collect your parcel from your registered address or you can drop off at one of our 50+ DHL Parcel UK depots.

We always ensure your parcel is in great hands, but there are a few things you can do to make sure your parcel arrives with your recipient in the way you want:

  • Make sure your parcel does not contain any prohibited items – this could result in your parcel being destroyed, returned back to you and any cover being invalidated. See our terms and conditions for more information
  • Ensure the safety of your parcels contents by making sure it is properly packaged as waterproofed - your parcel will be handled at several points throughout its journey so securely packaging and sealing your parcel is key to a successful delivery.
  • Do not use black plastic wrap on the outside of your parcels. Unfortunately automated scanning machines cannot read it and it will result in your parcel being refused on collection/drop off or being returned back to you – incurring a fee.

Germany is closer than you think with our door to door parcel delivery from the UK. Just register with us – it only takes a minute – and choose the delivery option that suits you best.
