The parcels or small packages of goods with destinations outside the European Union (EU) or outside the Canary Islands, Ceuta or Melilla in the case of these territories, may be subject to certain requirements for information and customs processing before their exportation, depending on the applicable customs law, mainly for reasons of international security. These information requirements can speed up the customs processing at the destination and provide greater traceability of your items.
All postal items with goods from non-European countries (imports), or from outside the Canary Islands, Ceuta and Melilla in the case of these territories, are subject to security checks at the border, as well as certain import procedures to release the items from customs and deliver them to your home.
The imported goods may be subject to certain customs duties and taxes, depending on the content, value and other legally applicable factors. These amounts must be paid by the recipient (the importer) in order to release the items pending customs processing.
Depending on the law in Spain and in the destination countries, some articles may be restricted or prohibited. The exporter must check the conditions of imports and exports and get information on the documents required (commercial invoice, certificates, licences, etc.) for taking goods into or out of the destination country. However, Correos offers convenient advice on facilitating the dispatch or reception of your items.
