Local Customs authorities have prohibited the shipping of mobile phones (excluding accessories and parts), cosmetics and alcoholic beverages into Vietnam via air transportation mode (Express & Freight).

Used goods are allowed as long as the consignee is an individual. The consignee must have the arrival/departure card, which is within 30 days from the date of import into Vietnam. A copy of consignee's passport is required.

Before sending your parcel to Vietnam, 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 Vietnam, 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 Vietnam 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 Vietnam, 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.

With a dozen industrial parks within its confines, the city receives more foreign investment than any other area of Vietnam. Ho Chi Minh was also home to Vietnam’s first ever stock exchange, has hundreds of thousands of small to medium sized businesses and attracts millions of tourists every year.
