If you are expecting an international shipment, remember that all goods, including online purchases, may be subject to restrictions and the payment of Customs duties and Correos management fees, depending on the content, their value and other criteria applied to shipments by Customs:
It is essential to present the commercial invoice, proof of payment via internet for any objects purchased online or for shipments of goods or any other document that may be required.
It is the recipient's responsibility to know the conditions for importing their shipment (prohibitions, restrictions, limitations, etc.) and to find out what documents may be required on arrival, including the commercial invoice, certificate of origin, licences and special authorisations for border controls, etc.
Importing postal items to Spain from the United Kingdom, except for the territory of Northern Ireland.
