Easy and hassle free value delivery
So handy for flying home when travelling with a toddler, my bag is sent before me and is waiting for my arrival without the hassle of carrying and sorting a suitcase at the airport. Also much better value!

Important Kenya Customs Information

General Customs Information when shipping to Kenya

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 Kenyan 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 Kenyan 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.

When a bag is stopped by customs for any reason (missing documentation, prohibited contents, commercial contents or further information required) Send My Bag™ records how long customs hold it for. Our historical statistics for this route indicate that if the customs authority stops your bag they will on average take 3 days to process it and release it back to us for delivery.

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, 3 x Woollen Jumper" and so on rather than as "10 x Used Clothing".
