CUSTOMS REQUIREMENTS FOR POLAND

When shipping goods to Poland, there are two sets of customs regulations to consider. Poland not only has its own import regulations but there are also those imposed by the EU.

Packages from the UK are subject to extra checks, tariffs and regulations when entering the EU. UK senders will need to complete customs documentation to ship products – and when you work with PACK & SEND, we’ll provide a commercial invoice and even help you complete it.

These forms let Customs Officials know the contents of a package so they can apply the correct charges at the border.

Items like personal effects and packages intended as gifts are usually exempt from customs charges – provided they’re in line with Poland’s import regulations. Make sure you’re not missing out on Customs Duty and VAT-free allowances by following government guidelines.

Some 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 too vague or not providing enough detail on your items – e.g., instead of just stating ‘gifts’, provide additional detail, like ‘oak photo frame with family picture’

· Sending items without the relevant licenses and certificates

You can trust in PACK & SEND’s stellar service history to make sure your packages are nationally and EU-compliant.

SHIPPING RESTRICTIONS FOR POLAND

Every country has its own unique regulations and restricted imports. It’s important to understand these before attempting to send your items internationally, or they may get delayed or rejected.

To avoid this, make sure you know what can be imported, in what quantities and what is restricted.

For example, Poland’s import restrictions include a limit of up to 10kg on meat products. Certain textiles and jewellery items are also prohibited.

If you’re still unsure about whether your items are permitted for import to Poland, contact the Polish postal service directly or work with an international courier service.

ADDRESSING PARCELS TO POLAND

Mistakes are common when filling in international addresses – so it’s important to know how to address domestic mail to Poland to avoid potential mix-ups or delays.

When shipping to Poland, the receiver’s name should appear on the first line and the street address should be written on the second line.

The third line is reserved for the postal code – which should be a 5-digit number – and the locality. The country name should be written on the fourth line.

For example:

Jan Kowalski UL. Bosmanska 1 81-116 GYDNIA Poland
