Documents Needed

After you have paid for a shipping service to Brazil, 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.

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

A shipment to Brazil 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 Brazil, 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.

Sao Paulo is a vast, bustling metropolis. Not only is it the largest city in Brazil, but it’s also ranked as having the seventh largest population in the world. The city is famous for both its historical buildings, such as the Sao Paulo Museum of Art and the Monumento às Bandeiras, and the many skyscrapers that are more recent additions to its skyline. Currently ranked the tenth richest city in the world and on course to become the sixth richest by the year 2025, Sao Paulo is the biggest financial centre in Brazil, with an economy which has switched from being industrial in nature to one being driven by providing services for the rest of the country. With an estimated population of over 11 million people and many foreign multinational corporations, this is a thriving modern city and there are innumerable reasons why individuals or businesses might wish to make a parcel delivery to Sao Paulo.
