How to clear customs in Greece

As Greece is currently an EU member state, there are no customs charges for shipping parcels over their borders from another EU nation. However, if you are shipping items from a country outside of the EU customs duty and tax limits do apply. If you are shipping to Greece from outside the EU and the declared value of your parcel’s contents is less than €150, you do not have to pay any further charges. If you declare the item as a gift, the limit is reduced to €45.

Is there anything I can’t send to Greece?

Any parcel that you send to Greece will have to pass through the Greek customs authority. This means that every parcel will be subject to examination to make sure no prohibited or restricted goods are being imported.

Greece prohibits the import of any computer software, jewellery and toys amongst other items. More information can be found on the Greek customs authority’s website.

Check ParcelHero’s list of prohibited items before you send anything.

Doing business in Greece

Greece is well-situated for trade with Eastern and Western Europe as well as the Middle East. There are many positives to doing business with Greece including close cultural ties with the UK, a plethora of UK businesses already thriving in the Greek market and a booming tourism industry. A major issue with doing business in Greece is the Greek sovereign debt crisis. Currently, the country’s economy is still seen to be going through recession. Therefore, it is prudent to approach business dealings with much caution. While there are opportunities for UK businesses to expand into Greece, prospects for growth look bleak.

How to address a parcel to Greece

Greek addresses are locally written using Greek characters, but we recommend that you fill out the paperwork and any information needed in English. This is because our couriers operate using English and it will be less confusing for you when providing us with the information we need to process your parcel.

An example of a typical Greek address:

  • Mr John Smith [Name]
  • Alkamenou 37[street, house number]
  • ATHENS [town]
  • 117 80 [postcode]
  • GREECE [country]

Deliveries and Greek national holidays

Commemorating the start of the Greek war of independence in 1821, National Day (25th March) is one of 13 national holidays observed in Greece when parcels cannot be collected or delivered. To find out if one of these days could cause delays to the delivery date you have in mind, check the dates before booking your shipment.
