Cheap parcel courier service to Rwanda

ParcelHero’s reputable service is based on relationships built with the best carriers in the world, which means we can pass on reliability and security to our customers. We have developed a quick and easy to use website with an Instant Quote function that even factors in remote area transit times, and our tracking services mean you always know where your package is.

ParcelHero offers express and economy delivery services to Rwanda. All of our delivery services come with comprehensive tracking, including real time scanning, and we will also send you an email to let you know when the parcel has arrived safely. Transit times are usually around 2-4 days. If you are looking to send a package to one of the more remote areas of the country this may vary. Estimated delivery times always depend on customs clearance, which must be obtained before the parcel can be delivered.

Rwanda is a large country with a diverse range of areas, both urban and rural. A significant number of these may be designated as remote areas for the purposes of shipping and when this is the case a small surcharge is included in your quote. It may also mean that parcels take longer to arrive where they are being delivered to an address in a remote area.

If you need to send an item to a remote area of Rwanda then ParcelHero can still help you – our Instant Quote facility is programmed to automatically include any remote area surcharge, and any additional transit time required, so that you can see how much this will cost and how long delivery will take.

Passing Rwandan customs

Rwanda is strict when it comes to import rules and regulations, so before sending your parcel you need to check whether its contents contradict any import restrictions. If you are sending an envelope to Rwanda – which contains only documents – then you don’t need to provide a customs invoice in order to ensure that the item is delivered. However, for every other type of shipment a customs invoice is required and if it is not provided then your parcel might be delayed or stopped altogether. To help with the customs clearance, the ParcelHero website will automatically produce a customs invoice when you book delivery online. You just need to print this off and have it ready for when the carrier comes to collect.

Items you are sending that are valued above $15USD will attract import duty and tax. Unfortunately, because these duties and taxes are calculated by customs when the parcel reaches the destination country, ParcelHero cannot include the duty and tax charges in the shipping costs. Rwanda has an extensive list of goods that it prohibits from entering the country, this list includes:

  • Furs
  • Precious metals
  • Poisons

To learn more about the rules governing customs imports visit the official Rwandan site, also read through ParcelHero’s list of prohibited items.
