Ghana, located about 4,500 miles from the UK in West Africa, is a popular ipostparcels destination.  Although small by some African country standards, the huge population of 24m and close ties to the UK means we always see a demand for sending all sizes of consignments there from Britain. 

Our worldwide air service is affordable and quick; it takes just several days from collection – or for a further £1.25 saving, you can drop off at one of our nationwide depots.

Read open and honest reviews


Your parcel is in safe hands when you send it with ipostparcels so there’s no need to worry. We offer a free, online parcel tracking system to give you full visibility of the parcel on its journey. And if that’s not enough to ease your mind, we provide £50 free extended contents cover on your item – you can choose to add extra cover if you wish.

Do I need to deal with Ghanaian customs?


For any parcel heading outside of the EU, including Ghana, 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.

As with most shipments to international destinations, when you send a parcel to Ghana from the UK, there are also sometimes customs duties and import taxes that need to be paid. Unfortunately, you can’t pay these charges with us at the time of booking as these charges are calculated at Customs in Ghana.

Important: If you are sending personal effects to someone in Ghana, the contents must be declared on the “Passengers Unaccompanied Baggage Declaration” Form. We advise you take care in filling out these details as not doing so correctly will delay delivery or even cause the parcel to be returned or destroyed.

Don’t worry though, when you book your delivery with ipostparcels, we will provide you with all the correct forms you’ll need; using the information you give us during the booking process, we’ll generate a customs invoice for you. We advise you print off two copies, attach one securely to the outside of the parcel and give the other to the driver when they arrive to collect your parcel. This should help to avoid any customs clearance delays.

What items can't I send to Ghana?


It’s always important to check any restrictions of the destination country before you book a parcel for delivery, whenever you send a parcel internationally.

It can be difficult to find a definitive list of restricted and prohibited goods for several places around the world, and Ghana is one of those. Most countries have restricted items that you might think are ordinary, so it’s always best to contact the customs authorities for that country first.

Remember, it’s down to you to make sure you’re not sending any prohibited or restricted items into Ghana, so to avoid being fined or having your parcel delayed, check the prohibited and restricted articles before you send your parcel.

Some examples of items you can’t post to Ghana include:

Restricted and Prohibited Goods

Food

Illegal and dangerous

 

Other

Meat, poultry and fish

Explosives, inflammable, corrosive or deleterious substances Airline tickets

Dairy products, eggs and honey

Drugs and narcotics Counterfeit items

Vegetables, fruit and nuts

Firearms, ammunition and explosives Precious metals and stones

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

How to package parcels to Ghana


Be vigilant when preparing your parcel – remember, your items will take quite a long journey to Western Africa and will pass through several depots with automated sorting machines to get to Ghana. We always advise you take extra effort to package your items well and use some lightweight internal cushioning material for your parcel, such as bubble wrap or newspaper to secure the items in place. Take a look at our packaging advice here.

ipostparcels can transport parcels up to 25kg in weight, 80x80x80cm max in size. We would advise you use a sturdy outer box when sending your package and don’t overfill it, regardless of the dimensions of your parcel. If you’d like further advice on packaging, take a look at our International packaging guide.
