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.

World Customs Organisation


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 Peru, 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.


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

A shipment to Peru 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 Peru, 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.

Our position as a leading courier comparison website means that we do a lot of business with large companies wishing to make multiple deliveries. Just as important to us, however, is the individual who wishes to send a single delivery to Peru, a job which will be treated with precisely the same care and respect as the most regular of corporate booking. To us, each parcel that needs shipping to Peru is as important as every other, and this is reflected in our treatment of every customer.

Peru is a South American republic bordered by Brazil, Chile, Bolivia, Colombia and Ecuador, and with a long coast along the Pacific Ocean on its western edge. Its economy is based primarily in the service sector, followed closely by manufacturing. Exports are expected to increase in the next few years following the signing of a Free Trade Agreement with the United States, and the chief exports of the country are textiles, zinc, gold, copper and fish meal. Millions of tourists flock to the country every year to visit the likes of Machu Picchu and Cusco, and to walk the Inca Trail.

A million reasons to send a package, we just make it easy to do so

In the past a country like Peru would have seemed distant and difficult to get to but in the age of globalisation and international travel this is no longer the case. The population of Peru is cosmopolitan, reflecting the different ethnic groups that have immigrated to the country over the centuries and it could be that a member of your family has made that same journey. With a loved one so many thousands of miles away, a Peru parcel delivery would be the perfect way to let them know you're still thinking of them. A letter, text message or tweet is all very well, but, when it comes to letting someone know you're thinking of them even though they're far away, nothing beats an individually chosen gift delivered safely into the hands of your loved one. Perhaps one of your children is volunteering overseas and is pining for a taste of home, so you know that a parcel delivery to them in Peru is the perfect way to hit the spot, or maybe your partner's working in Peru, and you want to send them a gift, which will reassure them that they're not forgotten in the most tangible manner.

If you want to send a parcel delivery to Peru then you'll find RapidParcel.com easy to use and containing prices that won't break the bank. We've negotiated the best deals available and our website has simplified the booking process to the point where even someone who has never had to organise Peru shipping will find it a quick and easy process. The couriers we use have names that you'll recognise, so you'll have the reassurance of knowing that your package delivery to Peru will be looked after every step of the way – a fact you'll be able to verify thanks to our online tracking system. So, if a loved one is in your thoughts, make sure you're in theirs with a Peru package delivery.

Our simple six-step booking process means that you can spend less time arranging for your delivery and more time choosing what you wish to send.
