Important Russia 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.

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".

Super helpful!
I had to leave Germany in a hurry because of a family emergency and had to leave my bags behind. I was able to get them back to the states via Send My Bag. My airbnb host was kind enough to hand them to the courier and I was able to get them on this side. It took me about a month to research all these different sites that could move my bags. I wanted the cheapest and easiest way to get my bags back as possible and I'm pretty sure that I found it! I have 4 more bags stuck in Germany and I will be using Send my bag to get those back as well! Thanks, Send My Bag!

Really good
I was very impressed with the whole process ! It was so easy , the hardest thing was that I’d left it till the last month to make the decision to send my excess luggage and then had to find document wallets ( post office ) . My suitcase left London Friday night and was delivered in Perth on Monday afternoon ! Before I even got home !!
Much cheaper than paying for excess baggage which was going the be 4 times the price !!!
Would highly recommend ‘ send my bag’
