Do I need to deal with Indian customs?

For any parcel heading outside of the EU, 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.

Implementation of Good and Services Tax (GST) - effective 1st July 2017

The Indian Government has announced GST Act based modifications to documentation for Import & Export clearance. India based shippers and consignees will have to comply with the changes in rules, tax structure and provide some additional data to GST Network and Customs before parcels will be cleared. This is a nationwide change in India's tax policies and further clarifications and modifications will be made.

Each taxpayer will be allotted a State wise PAN-based 15-digit Goods and Services Taxpayer Identification Number (GSTIN). On the invoice, it should be included under the main recipient’s address details.

The recipient is now required to complete what is called a Know Your Customer (KYC) form in order to have goods cleared on their behalf.

Once completed, please hand it to our driver with your other international paperwork. The information will be lodged with Customs and held on record, so any subsequent shipment to the same recipient will not need this again.

Details about GST can be found on the Government of India’s Central Board of Excise and Customs website.

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

What items can't I send to India?

As with all countries, India has its own set of rules and regulations regarding imports, so you must make sure your parcel will be accepted into the country. Failure to do so may result in additional charges, as these charges are added at the point of entry; they can’t be added to the prices we offer.

The Indian authorities change their laws from time to time, so we advise you re-check the regulations each time you send a parcel to India. Visit the Central Board of Excise and Customs website for more.

If sending personal effects to India, note that only used personal articles will be cleared as duty free. All other items will attract duty, and a special clearance charge of around INR 1500 will be charged in addition to the customs duties / local taxes. Paperwork will also need to include a copy of the recipient’s passport (showing photo, name, address and visa) in order to clear customs.

It’s your responsibility to make sure you’re not sending any prohibited or restricted items into India. Remember that prohibitions and restrictions vary from country to country and can sometimes apply to items which you may think are ordinary, so it’s vital to check that your parcel contents will be given customs clearance.

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

Restricted and Prohibited Goods


Illegal and dangerous



Animal and vegetables

Flammable fuels and liquids Publications containing maps showing incorrect boundaries of India

Meat, poultry, dairy and fish products

Drugs (prescripion or illicit) Natural abrasive

Cereals and rice

Weaponry Unused cheques, money order and unsigned credit cards

Fruit and vegetables

Firearms Precious stones, metals or pearls

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

How to package parcels to India

We recommend being attentive when it comes to preparing your parcel for India; your items will take a long journey and will pass through several depots with automated sorting machines. Be sure to make extra effort to package your items well and use internal cushioning material for your parcel.

We’ll transport parcels up to 25kg in weight, 80x80x80cm max dimensions – and advise you use a strong outer box when sending your package and don’t overfill it. If you’d like some further advice on packaging, take a look at our handy international packaging guide for tips to get everything there soundly.
