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.
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

It doesn't matter what kind of a holidaymaker you are, from time to time everyone feels the need to take souvenirs back home at the end of a jaunt to far off lands. Veteran travellers, all-inclusive tourists, gap year backpackers and families alike all want to take mementos as reminders of their special time overseas. Whether it's a bundle of designer clothing you simply can't find at home, the toys you found in the little shop on the corner that'd be perfect for a young relative or anything else that you picked up along the way, the temptation is to take advantage of what might be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and stock up. And that's where the problems could start. It's the ultimate nightmare scenario - on the final day of your holiday in the UK when you pack your cases you discover that there's simply too much to cram in. The zip won't close, your hand luggage is full to bursting, every pocket is up to the brim, and still there are lots of items scattered around the room. Even if you did somehow manage to fit all of it into your luggage, you'd be asked to pay steep extra charges for going over your airline's specified weight limits, so there are only two options - leave some of your treasured mementos behind or organise shipping to Izmir.
