Works as promised
Actually arrived one day early but FedEx just labeled it "not scheduled for delivery" and it sat in the local depot for 24 hours. Driver called and had me meet them downstairs. Dragging the 55# package by myself up three flights of stairs was not very pleasant. Pick up was on time, package in good shape.

Important Papua New Guinea Customs Information

General Customs Information When Shipping to Papua New Guinea

Most of Send My Bag's shipments are not stopped by customs, because most countries offer a generous duty-free allowance for personal effects, which are typically defined as items that have been owned by the sender for at least 6  months.

If your bag is checked by Papua New Guinean customs officials and they find brand new or commercial items, your shipment may be assessed for customs duties and taxes. This is something to be aware of when sending gifts to Papua  New Guinea. Please check in advance with Papua New Guinean customs so you know about any potential customs duties, follow any advice given and attach all necessary documentation.

More information is available on our customs information page.

In order to demonstrate your shipment is made up of personal effects you need to create a short non-generic packing list online, in the following way: "4 x Cotton Dresses, 3 x Jeans, 1 x Denim Jacket", etc., and not as "8 x Used Clothing".
