Do I need to deal with Italian customs?

Items posted from the UK to Italy do not require any customs documentation. The exceptions to this are the following destinations:

  • San Marino
  • Vatican City State

It’s worth noting that depending on the items sent, import charges may be payable by the recipient – visit the Italian Post website for more information.

Sending personal effects to Italy? An invoice clearly stating “Used Personal Effects” and a copy of passport is required to be exempt from duties. The sender’s details must also be stated and Customs will require a personal effects declaration for unaccompanied luggage into Italy.

Don’t worry if any of this seems confusing; when you book your parcel with us and state the destination, we’ll tell you what documents need to be sent with your package.

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