Customs requirements for delivery to Australia
Our international delivery experts make sure your parcels meet Australia’s customs requirements, for fast and reliable delivery.
All deliveries to Australia from the UK require customs documentation. This will be a commercial invoice. Your courier service will be able to provide these documents for you.
These must be completed accurately to avoid delays in shipping or – at worst – your parcel being returned to you or destroyed.
Include as much detail as possible when completing customs documents. For example, don’t simply write ‘clothes’. Instead, specify ‘2 red t-shirts, made in England’. This helps speed up customs checks when your package arrives in the country.
Australian addressesaresimilar to the UK, with a few smalldifferences. Follow the guide below to make sure your parcel arrives safely and avoids delays:
The recipient’s name goes on the first line, with the house number and street name on the second line.If they live in an apartment, the house number goes before the building number,separated by a slash.
The city, state and postcode allappear on the third line – with the state often abbreviated to a 3-digit code, e.g.,‘QLD’.
