Brilliant service with excellent personal customer service.
Fantastic service. My bag was collected on Thursday in Dublin and was received in Doha by recipient on Saturday. I would have no hesitation in using or recommending Send my Bag. My only concern is the price to Doha. I would have liked to send a little bigger Bag but the price doubled and was too expensive. But overall grest service.

Important Botswana Customs Information

General Customs Information when shipping to Botswana

As most countries offer a generous duty free allowance for personal effects, the majority of Send My Bag shipments worldwide will not be intercepted by customs.

Personal effects are usually considered to be used items which have been in the sender's possession for 6 months or more. If your bag is stopped by Botswana customs and is found to contain brand new or commercial items, your shipment may be assessed for customs duties and taxes. If you are sending Christmas gifts please check with Botswana customs so you are aware of potential customs duties, follow their advice and attach all necessary documentation.

Customs processes and allowances do vary by country and, therefore, we advise all travellers to take 5 minutes to check how their personal circumstances and what they are sending will be assessed under the prevailing customs regulations of the destination.

To find out more, check out our customs information page.

In order to demonstrate your shipment consists of personal effects, you will be required to complete a brief non generic packing list online, entries to be made in the format: "5 x Cotton Vests, 2 x Pairs of Shoes, 5 x Pairs of Polyester Socks", and so on, rather than as "10 x Used Clothing".
