Further Information on Shipping to South Africa

Shipping Restrictions and Customs Clearance

As with all countries around the world, South Africa has its own rules and regulations for what you can and cannot send there. Always check the import restrictions before you send your parcel to make sure it won’t get held up or denied entry.

If you are sending documents in an envelope they will not be subject to customs clearance, however all parcels will require a customs invoice to be sent with the goods. All you need to do is provide us with as much information as possible and we will provide you with all the necessary customs documents required to send a parcel to South Africa.

Your goods may also incur import duty and tax according to the local customs regulations. These charges are calculated and collected upon arrival by the local government and not by the courier. For this reason ParcelHero cannot confirm the amount of duties and taxes in advance or include these charges in the shipping costs.

Packaging Your Parcel

Whenever you send a parcel overseas with a courier it is crucial that you package your items well in a strong and firmly sealed box.

ParcelHero recommends wrapping your item in bubble wrap and placing it inside the correct sized box. Fill any space inside the box with parcel chips or newspaper to fully cushion the item and seal the box with good quality parcel tape. Ensure the required documents are securely fastened to the parcel and shake the box. If you can’t hear the item moving inside; your parcel is ready to ship.

From Portugal to Paraguay, ParcelHero has the best service at the best prices.
