Do I need to deal with Sri Lankan 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.

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

When you book your delivery with ipostparcels, we will provide you with all the correct forms you’ll need to help your parcel get through customs; using the information you give us during the booking process, we’ll generate a customs invoice for you. We advise you to attach it securely to the outside of the parcel as this will help to avoid any customs clearance delays.

Visit the Sri Lanka Customs website to find out more.

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

What items can’t I send to Sri Lanka?

Whenever you send a parcel overseas, it’s important to check the import restrictions of the destination country before you book. It’s sometimes difficult to find a list of restricted and prohibited goods for many countries and Sri Lanka is one of those. Most countries have some restricted items that you might think are ordinary, so it’s best to contact the customs authorities first.

It’s down to you to make sure you’re not sending any prohibited or restricted items into Sri Lanka, so don’t risk being fined, having your parcel seized, or worse, destroyed. Visit Sri Lanka Post for a list of prohibited and restricted articles, but some examples of items you can’t post to Sri Lanka include:


Restricted and Prohibited Goods


Illegal and dangerous


Meat and poultry

Flammable fuels and liquids

Indecent or obscene material

Dairy products

Drugs and derivatives


Plants and seeds

Explosives Radar/laser/thermal imaging devices


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

How to package parcels to Sri Lanka

We always recommend being attentive when packaging up your parcel – remember, your items will take quite a long journey and will pass through several depots, many with automated sorting machines.

Ipostparcels will transport parcels up to 25kg in weight, 80x80x80cm max in size – we would advise you use a strong outer box when sending your package and don’t overfill it. Use additional lightweight packaging material such as bubble wrap, newspaper or packing chips around the items. If you’d like further advice on packaging, take a look at our handy international packaging guide.

How safe will my parcel be?

If you observe and comply with the restricted / prohibited items list and general customs regulations for Sri Lanka, there’s no reason to worry about your parcel when you send with ipostparcels – it’s in safe hands! But of course you want to be sure, so to help with any concerns you may have, our free online tracking system will help you keep tabs on your parcel throughout its entire journey, from collection to delivery.

We also provide £50 free extended cover on your parcel to give you additional peace of mind, or you can choose to add extra cover for more valuable items.

Did you know?

Before Sri Lanka became famous for tea, it was all about coffee, believe it or not – unfortunately, the coffee fields of Sri Lanka were completely wiped out by leaf blight in the 1870s.

Sri Lanka is also the home of cinnamon, and most of the world’s supply (about 85%) still comes from here. Thinking happy thoughts? - Sri Lanka is known as ‘The Nation of Smiling People’.
