Do I need to deal with Portuguese customs?


In the past, a customs invoice was not needed when sending parcels to Portugal. However from 1st January 2021, you are now required to provide a customs invoice with parcels sent to Portugal and all other EU countries.

If you are not familiar with this process it is quick and easy to do - simply complete the Customs declaration section of our booking form and we'll use the information you provide to generate a customs invoice which will print with your label. All you need to do is securely affix to the outside of your parcel.

It’s worth noting however, that occassionally duties and taxes may be payable by the recipient. They will need to pay these before the parcel can be delivered to them.

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