Important Nepal Customs Information
General Customs Information
Personal effects are items that have been owned by the sender for at least six months. Most countries allow subtantial amounts of personal effects to cross their borders, duty free. For this reason, most Send My Bag shipments will not be stopped by customs.
If, however, your luggage or parcel is found to contain brand new or commercial items, you may need to pay taxes and duties.
This is something you should keep in mind if sending brand new items, such as Christmas or birthday presents, to Nepal. You should research any customs duties you might have to pay before you book your collection with Send My Bag. Please take any advice given by Nepalese customs and include all documentation required of you.
If only sending personal effects, you can demonstrate this to customs officials by completing a packing list online, that should be written as follows: "1 x Woollen Jumper, 3 x Jeans, 8 x Cotton T-Shirt", etc., rather than as "12 x Used Clothing".
Different countries have different customs processes and allowances, so we advise all travellers to take 5 minutes to find out how their personal circumstances and what they are sending will be assessed according to Nepalese customs regulations.
