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.

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 Czech Republic 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:

We're very proud of our courier comparison website and know that it's among the best resources for those looking to send their parcels and packages anywhere in the world. Our scale means that we're equally happy making a single, one time only package delivery to the Czech Republic as we are shipping to the Czech Republic regularly for bigger corporate customers. We use the most up-to-date technology to pare the booking process down to its barest essentials, which means that arranging a parcel delivery is as simple and speedy a process as it can be and we only work alongside couriers we know we can genuinely trust, thus assuring all our customers that their package delivery is in the safest hands possible. Although we handle each separate package delivery to the Czech Republic with absolute care and attention, it's when handling the specific demands of our business customers who need to utilise our Czech Republic shipping services time and time again that our expertise and experience truly come into their own.

The Czech Republic is a central European country which is surrounded by Austria to the south, Germany to the west, Slovakia to the east and Poland to the north-east. It is a member of the European Union and NATO and also the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE). Until 1989 the Czech Republic was a communist state and, since the collapse of communism, it has become one of the more stable and prosperous post-communist regions, with a GDP per capita which is 82% of the European Union average. In part, this is driven by trade with its immediate neighbours, something which is made easier by the country being part of the Schengen Area, which means that it has completely open borders with Germany, Austria, Poland and Slovakia. Alongside its international trade, the Czech Republic earns a large percentage of its income from international tourism, an industry which employs over 100,000 people, just over 1% of the country's population.

It's clear to see, then, that there are numerous reasons why any business might need to organise shipping to Czech Republic on a repeat basis, and at RapidParcel.com we pull out all the stops to ensure the service provided for our corporate customers is second to none
