Passports, credit cards, jewellery, cosmetics, toiletries, etc are prohibited for import into Nigeria.
Before sending your parcel to Nigeria, please make sure that none of the items in your parcels contravene the restrictions imposed by customs at destination.

Arranging a Nigeria package delivery couldn’t be simpler with Rapidparcel.com
Whether you’re running a business or sending a personal gift, you no doubt lead a busy life with too much to do and not enough time to do it in.

At RapidParcel.com we go out of our way to make the comparison of leading couriers, their selection and the booking process as quick and easy as possible.
Nigeria is a land of extremes. Its population is the largest on the African continent, but there are still areas of sparsely populated wilderness to be found. While being one of the wealthiest countries in West Africa due to an abundance of natural resources, many live on very meagre incomes. And its thriving cities are an extreme contrast to the country’s beautiful natural landscapes and abundant wildlife. Whether you’re sending your Nigeria delivery to friends on safari, family on holiday, parents who live there, colleagues, clients or suppliers, RapidParcel.com is the courier resource you need.
Your delivery to Nigeria is in safe hands when you book through RapidParcel.com because the couriers we work with are established household names boasting, between them, many decades of experience shipping parcels of every kind to all four corners of the globe.
