Clearing customs in Egypt

You will need to provide a customs invoice with your delivery to Egypt – this is something that ParcelHero will automatically generate by asking for various pieces of information as you make your booking. All you have to do is print off the relevant paperwork and attach it to the outside of the package before it is picked up. There will be duties and taxes levied on your package during the clearance process. ParcelHero cannot include these in the shipping costs as they are calculated and charged by the local customs authorities when the items enter the country.

What are Egypt's customs rules?

As with any country, Egypt has its own rules on what items can be sent into the country. It is important that you understand these before arranging your delivery – if you try to send a prohibited item then the local customs authorities may delay your parcel or destroy it. For example, among many other items you cannot send honey, electronic cigarettes, cameras or contact lenses into the country. To find out more, visit Egypt’s customs website. ParcelHero also has our own rules about Prohibited and Restricted items.

Can I send antiques from Egypt to the UK?

There are many fantastic antiques to be found in Egypt, but unfortunately ParcelHero cannot help send them home. Many antiques are considered irreplaceable, and as such are not carried by our partner couriers.

ParcelHero works with the best freight carriers to make it simple to carry your cargo to Cairo, all while enjoying great savings. We can carry packages up to 270cm long and 1,000kg in weight, so there is nothing to fear.

Can I send food to Egypt?

ParcelHero makes it cheap to send food to Cairo, Alexandria or any Egyptian destination. All you need to do is keep in mind that you can’t ship homemade or perishable food; all your food shipments should be store bought and in the original packaging.

How do I address a Parcel to Egypt?

To make sure that your package arrives at the right place in good time, it’s important to make sure that the address is exactly right. A normal Egyptian address includes:

  • Mr John Smith [Name]
  • 30, Rue Ahmed Orabi [Street address]
  • Al-Mohandessine [district]
  • GIZA [governate]
  • 12411 [Postcode]

Egyptian postcodes are made up of five digits. The first two digits are the region and province of Egypt that the destination is in. The other digits indicate the delivery area and type of service.

Public Holidays in Egypt?
