Key information to note:
- Ensure there are no ⛔ restricted/prohibited ⛔ items within your packages. You may refer to this link as a guideline on what not to include!
- German customs have stringent policies on food import, so we will suggest to exclude/separate food items from your personal belongings that you require more urgently.
- You should have a clear list of commodities. As you fill up your shipment form, you’ll be required to list down the items you are shipping. You do not need to list and specify them individually (eg. 1 hair tie, 3 towels and 5 combs) - but you should still be concise and clear:
- Used Clothings
- Used Photoframes
- Used kitchenware
- Used Shoes
- Value of items should be declared accurately. We had shippers/recipient who were made to provide evidences of the purchase value of the goods shipped, and the entire verification process took up several weeks, delaying the delivery of shipment.
Duties & taxes?
- Tax threshold for shipments to Germany is 0 Euro.
In other words, most - if not all shipments will be taxed. This includes personal effects, gifts & repair and return shipments.
- Duty threshold is approx 150 EURO (210 SGD). Different item category will have relevant duties charged at their respective rates. To get an estimated quote for import charges, you can fill in your shipment details via our rate calculator here.
If you are confident that the items will not be taxed, you can choose to have the charges paid by recipient instead. That will mean that you will not be required to make any upfront payment for duties & taxes prior to your shipment. If there are any import charges incurred for your shipment, it will be billed to your recipient directly after parcel arrives at the destination country. Package will be released for delivery after payment of the charges.
