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 Serbia, 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 Serbia 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:

No matter why you need to make a parcel delivery to Serbia, one of your key concerns will be the certainty that your Serbia shipping is going to arrive in perfect condition. You may be representing a business with commercial concerns in central Europe, in which case it could be a sample of your goods that requires shipping in order to close a lucrative sales deal. Equally important to us are the individual customers who need to send a Serbia package delivery, people sending gifts to members of their family or reminders of home to lift the spirits of distant friends. In both cases, the careful treatment and total protection of your Serbia package delivery is at the heart of everything we do.

The central European country of Serbia is bordered by nine countries (two of which are disputed territories of Serbia itself). Although it has a long and rich history, Serbia only regained its independence in 2006 and is now pushing to regain some of the economic prowess of its fourteenth century empire. If you visit this country the capital city of Belgrade is an absolute must for its majestic architecture and museums as well as the chance to discover hidden gem restaurants and the non-stop nightlife. In contrast, southern Serbia is a tranquil land of rolling hills and wooded valleys for visitors to relax and enjoy. With increasingly popular resorts and a massive music festival scene the country attracts over two million visitors a year. Also, as an associate member of the EU and with free trade agreements with Europe, Russia and Belarus, Serbia's economy is set to grow and grow.
