Baggage Shipping to Luxembourg
Important Luxembourg Customs Information
Most countries offer a generous duty free allowance for personal effects and the majority of Send My Bag™ shipments worldwide will not be stopped by customs.
Personal effects are usually assessed as used items which have been in the sender's possession for 6 months or more. If your bag is checked by 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 the destination country 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 as such we advise all travellers 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 2 days to process it and release it back to us for delivery.
More information is available in on our customs information page.
In order to demonstrate your shipment is 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 T-Shirts, 2 x Jeans, 3 x Cotton Shirt" and so on rather than as "10 x Used Clothing".

Luxembourg (official title, ‘Grand Duchy of Luxembourg’) is a Eurozone country in Western Europe bordering Germany, Belgium and France. Its official language is Luxembourgish (Lëtzebuergesch), with French and German used as administrative languages. This small country of only 999 square miles and 562,958 inhabitants is a Constitutional Monarchy, whose head of state is HRH Grand Duke Henri. The country enjoys a mild climate, with an average minimum temperature of only 30°F in winter and an average maximum temperature of 73°F in summer.
Luxembourg makes a great vacation destination, whether you are looking for beautiful landscapes to explore during a week-long activity break, or architecture to admire during a couple of days in the city.
The capital of the country, Luxembourg City contains plenty of sites, shops and restaurants to keep you busy for a few days, from the elegant Grand Ducal Palace, to the old quarters of the city and its fortifications, and the Musée d’Art Moderne, itself an architecturally impressive building. Shopping in Luxembourg City comes with the added bonus for visitors residing outside the EC of VAT being deducted from prices in many shops.
If you are planning to venture beyond the capital city, there are plenty of impressive landscapes to walk or cycle in, such as the Mullerthal region, the Moselle, the Ardennes and the areas around the rivers Sûre and Our. The Mullerthal region contains three different walking trails and there are cycle paths following the three rivers, Moselle, Sûre and Our.
