How to pass Ugandan Customs

As Uganda is not part of the EU there is no free movement of goods and so your parcel will need to clear local customs to be delivered. For this you will need to attach a customs invoice to the package, which the ParcelHero booking system will generate for you during the booking process.

Your parcel can only be delivered in Uganda once your parcel has been cleared by the Ugandan border authority. If the contents of your parcel are valued under $50USD you will not have to pay any customs duties or taxes.

It is important that you are not sending any items into the country that are prohibited or restricted, as this may result in your package being delayed or destroyed. Uganda prohibits a large list of items from entering the country, this list includes:

  • Liquor
  • Magnetized materials
  • Tapes + video cassettes
  • Second hand or old appliances and computers

ParcelHero also has a list of items that we will not carry, be sure to check that along with the Ugandan customs site before you package your item for delivery.
