How do you clear Swedish customs?

Sweden is a part of the EU, so packages from other member nations can enter without paying duties or taxes. Shipments from other countries will have to clear customs however. If your shipment is worth less than 300 Swedish Krone, there will be no duties or taxes levied on it. If it is worth more than 300 SEK, it will have to pass through formal clearance processes, and VAT will have to be paid. If the parcel is worth less than 1,300 SEK, you won’t have to pay duties, but will still have to pay tax. Above that value, taxes and duties will both be applied to your parcel.

Are there rules for what I can send to Sweden?

There are rules about what you are allowed to ship to Sweden. If you try to send goods that are not allowed, they may be returned or destroyed at customs. For the most part, the rules about what are allowed into the country are very similar to ParcelHero’s own rules about Prohibited and Restricted items. There are some more specific rules, such as the ban on rubber erasers that look like food and toys and games containing copper sulfate, which you can learn more about on Sweden’s customs website.

Can I send food from the UK to Sweden?

Not everyone is a fan of pickled herring, and even the famous Swedish meatballs could eventually wear thin. If you want to send food to friends or family in Sweden, just keep in mind that it has to be store bought and in the sealed, original packaging. You can’t send homemade or perishable foods internationally.

Can I send freight shipments to Sweden?

ParcelHero specialises in large and heavy delivery around the world, in partnership with leading freight firms like TNT. We get you a great price, and you can put your parcel into the safest hands around.

Can I send my luggage from Stockholm to London ahead of me?

When it comes to having a great holiday, there's nothing better than peace of mind. With ParcelHero, there’s no need to worry about your luggage, and whether it will arrive in the right place. We’ll pick it up from your front door and have it waiting in your hotel room when you arrive.

Exporting your business to Sweden

According to the World Bank, Sweden is the ninth easiest country in the world to do business in, so it should be no surprise that it is a popular business destination. It operates much like the UK, with some leading UK imports including:

  • machinery and transport equipment
  • manufactured goods
  • electrical and communications products

For more information on these and other export opportunities, visit the UK Government’s Export Guide, or our government partner Exporting is Great.

How do I address a Parcel to Sweden?

The correct address is absolutely vital to ensuring that your parcel arrives at the right place, and on time. Thankfully, this is simple with ParcelHero, and you just need to make sure you include:

  • Mr. John Smith [The name of the recipient]
  • Hagagatan 1, vi [Street, number, apartment floor]
  • SE-113 49 [Postal code]
  • Stockholm [City]
  • SWEDEN [Country name]

Sweden uses a five digit postal code system, made up of three and then two digits separated by a space. The first three digits signify the location within the country, with the basic idea being that the lower the value, the further south in the country that location is.

Sending gifts to Sweden

Everyone needs a break every now and then, whether that’s just a ‘fika’ or a couple of days on the weekend. That’s why our partner couriers only deliver during the normal working week. If you need to send a gift for a special date, be sure to take that into account.
