Will I be charged anything by Italian Customs?

Italy is a member of the EU, so if you’re shipping from within the EU there is no customs clearance or charges and you don’t need to produce any additional paperwork.

If you’re sending your parcel from outside the EU then Italy applies duty and taxes charges on anything worth more than €150. This will all be worked out when your package is at the border and charged to the person you are sending to.

Most items are charged VAT (known as IVA in Italy) at Italy’s standard rate of 22%, though some items get a reduced rate.

What can I send to Italy?

Italy allows the import of most sensible items, so avoid anything on ParcelHero’s prohibited items list and you should be fine. You can always check the website for Italy’s Customs agency Agenzie delle Dogane e die Monopoly to be sure.

What does an Italian address look like?

This is a typical example of an Italian address format:

Sig John Smith

Via del Corso 305

00186 Roma RM


Italy uses a postcode format that is known as Codice di Avviamento Postale, or CAP. These codes are generally five digits long, and relate to a specific town or village.

Don’t forget, when sending from abroad, to include the country name in capital letters at the end of the address.
