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)

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 Greece 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:

Our status as a premier courier comparison website has resulted in us undertaking lots of business with big companies needing to make multiple deliveries. Equally important in our eyes, however, are the individuals who want to send a single Thessaloniki parcel delivery; this is a task that will be handled with exactly the same respect and care as the biggest corporate booking. As far as we're concerned, each parcel that requires shipping to Thessaloniki is as vital as every other, and this is reflected in our treatment of our customers.

Thessaloniki is one of the oldest surviving cities in Europe, with a history dating back more than 2,300 years. Second in Greece only to the capital city of Athens as a centre for commercial, industrial, political and economic concerns, Thessaloniki is seen as a key transportation location for the whole of south-eastern Europe. Thanks to its rich history, it boasts several striking Byzantine monuments and attractions such as Ottoman and Sephardic buildings. The main university in Thessaloniki, the Aristotle University, is the country's biggest and has been rated as one of the top 250 in Europe.

The population of Thessaloniki is rich and varied, representing the many ethnic groups that have travelled to the city over the years, and it could be that someone in your family has made that same journey. With a family member so many miles away, a Thessaloniki parcel delivery would be the finest means of letting them know they're in your thoughts. A text message, tweet or letter are all well and good but, when it comes to letting someone know you're thinking of them despite the fact that they're many miles away, nothing is better than a personally chosen gift and a Thessaloniki package delivery will see that this gift ends up resting safely in the hands of your loved one. Maybe one of your children is working overseas and desperately missing your home cooking, so you know that a parcel delivery to Thessaloniki is the perfect way to cheer them up, or perhaps your other half is working in Greece and you'd like to send them a gift in a Thessaloniki package delivery or even a parcel delivery to Athens, which will make it plain in the most tangible way that they're not forgotten.

If you choose to send a Thessaloniki parcel delivery then you'll find that RapidParcel.com is simple to use and has the kind of prices that will suit most budgets. We've come up with the best deals out there and our website has streamlined the booking process to such a degree that even someone who has never needed to arrange Thessaloniki shipping before will find it a speedy, simple process. The couriers we work with are names that you'll know, so you'll be certain that your package delivery to Thessaloniki will be handled carefully every step of the way - a fact you'll be in a position to verify using our online tracking system. So, if a family member is in your thoughts, you can make sure you're in theirs with a Thessaloniki package delivery.
