Don't send restricted or prohibited items when posting abroad
Some items are subject to restrictions, whether they are prohibited or require special certification for customs clearance.
This covers antiques, alcohol, sharp objects, some electronic items and much more. If you’re not sure whether your item(s)
might be restricted, check with the customs department of the destination country. Each and every country we deliver to has its own
page with information on restricted and prohibited items and DHL Parcel UK also has its own
list of prohibited and
restricted items - note this is in addition to any country-specific rules, so please
check those pages carefully before you send.
You'll also need to place a customs declaration on your parcel prior to sending parcels abroad, which details the contents and value. When you send with DHL Parcel UK, our online
booking system will tell you what forms you need to include with your parcel, make sure you fill
them in correctly, clearly and with as much detail as possible. This helps the Customs agents in
the destination country process the parcel quickly.
If there are any prohibited items in your package, we won’t be able to deliver
