Clearing customs in Zambia

If the contents of your parcel are valued at 50USD or less then they will be exempt from duties and taxes when they reach the Zambian border. Above this value, charges will be applied, and your receiver will be billed.

There is no need to obtain customs clearance if you are sending documents in an envelope into Zambia. However, for all other items there is a requirement for a customs invoice to accompany the package. If this sounds like a complicated process, don’t worry, it’s not. To make things really easy, ParcelHero automatically creates the customs invoice for you when you are completing your booking process.

What are Zambia's customs rules?

Like any country, Zambia has strict rules and regulations that apply to anything that is sent into the country. We recommend that you familiarise yourself with the import restrictions before sending your parcel to make sure that you are not trying to send anything restricted or prohibited. For more information see the Zambia customs authorities website. ParcelHero also has our own rules about Prohibited and Restricted items.

Doing business in Zambia

Although Zambia is not a particularly large importer, in recent years there has been over 16% growth in global imports. There are relatively few British businesses established in Zambia, so the 17 million residents of the country will still enjoy the unfamiliarity of British goods. Leading global imports include:

  • Mining equipment
  • Cast Iron products
  • Medical goods
  • Petroleum

How do I address a Parcel to Zambia?

No matter how simple we make the process, actually finding a specific address in Zambia can at times be difficult. By ensuring that you get the address right, our partner couriers have a significantly easier time finding the right destination. A typical Zambian address looks like this:

  • Mr John Smith [Name]
  • 21 Independence Avenue [street address]
  • KITWE[locality]
  • 23456 [postcode]
  • ZAMBIA [Country]

Zambia has a five digit postal code. The first two digits specify the routeing province, while the third indicates the routeing zone. The final two digits are used to narrow down the postal area and actual location.

Public Holidays in Zambia

Our partner couriers only deliver on normal working days. If you are sending a gift or other time sensitive goods, you will need to plan around weekends and public holidays when making your booking.
