Clearing customs in Colombia

As it is not within the EU, all parcels to Colombia must be accompanied by a customs invoice. During the ParcelHero booking process you will be asked for information about the items you’re sending which is used to auto-generate this invoice. All you have to do is print it out and attach it to the package.

If the contents of your parcel are worth more than 200USD then taxes and duties will be charged when your shipment reaches the Colombian border. These will be charged to your recipient - ParcelHero does not calculate or collect these fees so we cannot include them in the shipping quote that we give you.

Are there Colombian customs rules?

Colombia has no exceptions to duties and taxes, so whatever you send will incur fees once it reaches the Colombian border. These will be charged to your recipient and ParcelHero does not handle this money at any point.

Like any country, Colombia has rules on what can and can’t be imported into the country and you must check the import restrictions to make sure that your package doesn’t contain anything on the prohibited items list, such as used clothing. For more information take a look at the Colombia customs authorities website. ParcelHero also have our own rules about prohibited and restricted items.

Can I send food to Colombia?

Yes, there are lots of food items you can send to Colombia with ParcelHero. Don't try sending Bolognese to Bogota, as no perishable goods can be shipped, but as long as you are sending food that is store bought and in the original packaging, does not expire within six months and has all the ingredients listed, you should be fine.

Can I send luggage to Colombia ahead of me?

Why not take the stress out of going on holiday? Let ParcelHero take care of your luggage for you – we’ll pick it up from your front door and have it waiting for you at your hotel when you arrive. Just be sure to package it properly for shipping - just stuffing it in a suitcase will not be enough protection.

Can I send freight from Colombia to the UK?

A freight shipment is no problem for ParcelHero. We ship parcels of all shapes and sizes, in partnership with leading freight couriers. Best of all, you get the same great savings of up to 60%, even for shipments up to 1,000kg in weight and 270cm long.

Can I Have Deliveries on Public Holidays in Colombia?
