CUSTOMS REQUIREMENTS FOR CYPRUS

As with any international deliveries, shipping to Cyprus from the UK requires additional checks, tariffs and regulations.

UK-based senders need to complete a commercial invoice to ship products. This formality helps Customs Officials tell whether imported items should be subject to import duties, and if so, how much they need to charge.

Find out how Brexit affects your shipping plans and all information around additional costs on our dedicated page. At PACK & SEND, we can sit down with you to build the best strategy to suit you and your cargo.

Some packages are exempt from customs charges – like personal effects and items intended as gifts, for example – provided they’re in line with Cyprus’ import regulations. Depending on the contents, packages may qualify for the Customs Duty and VAT-free allowance. Make sure you check the government website to find out if your contents are eligible for tax exemption.

Common mistakes include:

  • Not filling in the paperwork correctly (putting information in the wrong place or missing sections entirely).
  • Trying to send prohibited or restricted items.
  • Being vague or not giving enough detail – e.g., instead of writing ‘clothes’, state ‘2x men’s cotton shirts, made in England.’
  • Sending items without the correct licenses and certificates.

PACK & SEND understands the intricacies of European regional customs regulations, so we’re able to do the heavy lifting and minimise the risk of misplaced goods or seizure.

During transit, we’ll inform you of any customs clearance issues if they do arise. However, we will work with you before shipping to avoid any problems.

SHIPPING RESTRICTIONS FOR CYPRUS

The Cyprian government outlines what you can and can’t import and what restricted items can be brought in only under certain conditions.

Knowing these ahead of time is key to making sure your packages don’t run into trouble. So, be sure to double-check quantities of products and any licences for higher-risk products.

For example, the Cyprian government are tight on alcohol imports, with strict limits on quantities. Certain plants like wild fauna and flora are also prohibited, and certain breeds of dogs and birds require specific licenses before granted passage into Cyprus.

Check out the full list of prohibited and restricted imports to Cyprus before sending.

ADDRESSING PACKAGES TO CYPRUS

Not all nations have the same format for shipping addresses, so be sure to use the correct layout to avoid your packages being returned to you.

In Cyprus, the full name goes on the first line, with the flat or house number and the road name on the second line.

The third line is reserved for the locality and the 4-digit postcode, while the nation name should be written on the fourth line.

It should look something like this:
