Do I need to deal with Japanese customs?


For any parcel heading outside of the UK, you’ll need to fill out a customs form. This tells the Customs Agents in the destination country about the contents of your package so they can process it correctly. When you book your delivery with us, we will provide you with all the correct forms you need to help your parcel through customs.

As with most international posting, when you send a parcel to Japan from the UK there are sometimes additional customs duties and import taxes that need to be paid.These duties and taxes may be applied to your shipment upon import and are calculated and charged by the local authorities, therefore can’t be included in our prices.

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

What items can't I send to Japan?


As well as the usual prohibited and restricted items you would expect from any international parcel delivery, there are some additional restrictions on what you can and can’t send to Japan.

It’s vital to ensure that your parcel’s contents will be accepted into the country, as if it not this will result in additional charges to return the parcel to you, or your parcel being destroyed.

Some examples of items you can’t send to Japan include:
