Customs Advice

The importation of certain products into a country is restricted in order to protect the economy and safety of its citizens. The restrictions may be imposed by Customs or by any other agency which has regulatory authority.

We provide a shipping service only and Customs at the parcel's destination will determine whether any charges are payable on your package. All duties, taxes and/or quarantine fees applied are at the discretion of local customs or governmental organisations and are out of our control.

If the addressee refuses to pay duties/taxes, the parcel may be held, returned (if allowed by Customs) or destroyed, and additional costs may be incurred. As per Terms and Conditions, those charges will be billed to the sender.

Please note, no shipping costs are recoverable for parcels held or destroyed, even if shipping protection cover has been purchased.

Majority of parcels can be delivered door to door, once it has cleared customs at destination. However, some countries have a door to airport service only. In those countries, the recipients may have to present themselves to either Customs or the local courier's office to take possession of their consignment.

We advise you to verify independently, all Customs, Governmental and Quarantine regulations. These rules can and do frequently change without prior notice or recourse.

Economic Operator Registration and Identification (EORI)

It is now a requirement that all exporters sending freight outside of the E.U must have an EORI number if they are VAT registered.

If you have any queries regarding the EORI application process then please visit the HMRC website.

Documents Needed

After you have paid for a shipping service to Kenya, you will be redirected to a page where you can download and print out the relevant shipping labels, i.e

AWB (Courier Air Waybills - barcode) - Proforma or Commercial invoice - Address label.

The above documents are standard for any international shipment.

Please note, if additional documentation is required for the import of any particular item, it is the customer's responsibility to provide them at destination.

Restrictions

Goods travelling by 'Cargo' are subject to different restrictions to those travelling as carry-on luggage.

A shipment to Kenya is deemed unacceptable if: it is classified as hazardous material, dangerous goods, prohibited or restricted articles by IATA (International Air Transport Association), ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) or other relevant organisation. Many items which appear harmless in everyday use can pose danger on air transport and are consequently forbidden for transport.

The following page displays a sampling of common prohibited and restricted goods.

Packing Advice

Your parcel must be boxed and well packaged. This will reduce the risk of damage to any item during transit or any associated automated distribution process.

Please be aware the item is not taken by hand from collection to destination and will visit many sorted facilities on its journey. For that reason, you need to protect the items to ensure they make it from A to B safely.

The following packaging guidelines are recommendations to assist you in packaging your shipment:

Shipment Protection

When you book a shipping service to Kenya, you will be able to choose an appropriate level of cover for your shipment. We offer enhanced parcel protection for up to £2000 for a small additional fee.

If you do not purchase enhanced Shipment Protection, your shipment will be only covered to a maximum value of £50 as per the limited liability set out in our Terms & Conditions and subject to your parcel passing minimum packaging requirements.

Please note that the declared value for customs purposes is not related to the declared value selected for Shipment Protection. We encourage all customers to purchase shipment protection cover for loss or damage.

When you need to make a parcel delivery to Nairobi you can rely on RapidParcel.com The customers who use RapidParcel.com do so for one very good reason – when you depend upon the reliability of the delivery service you’re using, you want to be one hundred per cent certain that your Nairobi package delivery will arrive precisely where and when it needs to.

Nairobi, the capital of Kenya, is one of the most politically and financially important cities in Africa, with companies such as Google, Coca-Cola, Cisco Systems and General Electric basing their regional headquarters there. Its central business district boasts a skyline that wouldn’t be out of place in New York or London, with many skyscrapers built during the construction boom of the last decade. With foreign companies such as Toyota Motors, Goodyear and General Motors building factories in the city, the demand for Nairobi package delivery has never been higher.

In this day and age it’s easy to imagine that all business deals can be done via the Internet but, despite rapid advances in technology, there are still times when an actual object has to be delivered in person. It may be that an overseas office requires hard copies of a contract that has to be read and signed in person, or an important foreign sale depends upon the buyer being able to see and examine a physical product sample. It could be that the company you are working with will only deal with invoices that are entered manually or perhaps you want to send gifts as a thank you for good work done on your behalf. Whatever the particular circumstances of your case, if you need to make a parcel delivery to Nairobi then our courier comparison and booking website is the best place to start looking.
