The 40 Most Obscure Shipping Laws

Tuesday, 20 January 2015

When sending things abroad there are certain laws that must be adhered to; while some of them are fairly standard, such as not sending explosives, some shipping laws take a rather more obscure turn. With each country having their own rules and regulations when it comes to sending items, we’ve compiled some of the most obscure to ensure you don’t make an error in judgement and attempt to send tents to Jordan or Kinder Eggs to the US.

It may also come as a surprise to hear that the UK also has its share of weird shipping laws, namely that horror comics may not be sent into the country! Who knew?! So, take a look at our list of the 40 Most Obscure Shipping Laws and not only will you be educated in what you can and can’t send abroad, but you’re also sure to be left wondering what Albanians class as extravagant clothes and what the Italians have against bells!
