Customs and International Shipping

If you are shipping to China, or sending a parcel to the USA or another destination outside the EU with DHL, you will need to prepare customs documentation and your package may be liable for import duty and tax. ParcelHero® will help you produce the customs paperwork required.

Customs will assess what level of duty and tax (if any) are to be applied to your shipment when your goods arrive in the destination country. If you're sending gifts or personal effects, and they are below a certain threshold, your shipment will likely not incur any import duty charges, however every country's import rules and thresholds vary, so it's worth checking with the destination countries local customs office or website.

Once customs have decided on the level of duty or tax to apply to your shipment, DHL will then contact the recipient to arrange payment prior to delivery. Learn more about customs
