Local Customs authorities have prohibited the shipping of mobile phones (excluding companies with import license).

Any shipments valued above 75 euros will go through formal customs clearance. Turkish Customs will impose a fixed charge of 250 EUROS for all shipments that are returned due to failed clearance.

Before sending your parcel to Turkey, please make sure that none of the items in your parcels contravene the restrictions imposed by customs at destination.

Documents Needed

After you have paid for a shipping service to Turkey, 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 Turkey 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 Turkey, 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 have to arrange a package delivery to Ankara there are certain things that you'll almost certainly be looking for - couriers you can rely upon, a booking procedure that doesn't take too long to complete and a price for a parcel delivery to Ankara that won't break the bank. At RapidParcel.com, we think of such things as being the very basics of the shipping business, the features you can take for granted when organising an Ankara delivery, and, having set these basics in place, we go out of our way to provide a wide range of other features that genuinely make our service the best around.

Ankara is the capital city of Turkey and, as such, houses the centre of the Turkish government and all the country's foreign embassies. Situated firmly at the centre of Turkey's road and rail network, Ankara is of vital strategic importance where the shipping of goods is concerned, particularly to the agricultural region surrounding the city. In times past, the economy of the city was built upon the production of Angora wool from the Angora rabbit and mohair from the Angora goat; other products associated with the area include wine and honey.

The cost-effective courier service

If you need to send a parcel delivery to Ankara, whether for commercial or personal reasons, then our website renders the whole process as easy as possible. We use the best technology to make life easier for our customers, and we pass on the resulting savings in time and money to you in the shape of a stripped down, simplified booking process which involves only six easy steps between you and the despatch of your Ankara shipping, a parcel delivery to Istanbul or packages shipped to anywhere else for that matter.

We understand, though, that, no matter how simple we keep things, there are still some people who would feel more at ease with face-to-face personal handling of their Ankara package delivery. As usual, we're keen to meet the needs of every one of our customers, and that's why we offer 'Rapid Parcel & Post' dedicated drop-off points across the United Kingdom. Situated in easily locatable places such as airports and train stations, these drop-off points are staffed by experienced representatives who'll be able to talk you through every aspect of booking an Ankara delivery. With their assistance, you'll receive answers to any questions you might have and assurance as to the safety and security of the goods you're shipping to Ankara; they'll also be in a position to highlight the extensive range of extras we offer, such as a dedicated blog for gathering delivery critical information from and online tracking. Many of these drop-off points sell export strength packaging materials, so if you're even slightly worried about the long journey your Ankara parcel delivery is about to take you'll be able to package it in such a way as to make certain that it arrives in perfect condition. We never let our hi-tech website facade detract from the reality that this, like every business, is all about people, so if you want the personal touch, we're happy to provide it.

Of course, you don't have to drop your items into us, we can collect from you wherever you are in the country so long as we can gain access. So whether you expect to be at work, at home, at a friends or at a café down the road, we can arrange for our carriers to pick up from you. So no more waiting around at home, convenience is key to our success and your service.
