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)

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 Romania, 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.

Restrictions

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

A shipment to Romania 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 Romania, 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.

When you send a package to Romania, there'll be certain things that you'll expect to be able to take for granted: that your package will arrive exactly where you want it to and within the time frame you selected, that whatever is in your parcel will be in perfect condition when it arrives, and that the booking process will leave you knowing exactly what you've paid for and how much you've paid for it. We provide all of this and more for your delivery to Romania, but we don't expect our customers to pay over the odds for this level of security and excellence. On the contrary, we pride ourselves on doing our best at the kind of prices for shipping to Romania that our competitors won't be able to match.

Romania is the ninth largest country in the European Union, having joined on the 1st January 2007. For many years it was a socialist republic controlled by the Soviet Union, but the fall of the Iron Curtain and the revolution of 1989 saw it eventually emerge as a free country in its own right. Since the year 2000, the economy of Romania has been stable with high growth and low unemployment and inflation. The introduction of a flat tax system in 2005 gave a huge boost to the private sector in the country and also helped lead to an influx of foreign investment, to such a degree that Romania now attracts more inward investment that anywhere else in the region. A 2006 World Bank report found that Romania scored 55 out of 175 countries in terms of the ease of doing business – a higher position than neighbouring countries. A combination of history, landscape and a Black Sea coastline helps draw millions of European tourists to Romania every year, resulting in the tourism sector being a major driver of the economy, with the World Travel and Tourism Council naming the country as the fourth fastest growing in the world in terms of travel and tourism.
