Important Turkey 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".

Easy and fast!
I had left a box of books in the US after my year abroad there and wanted to get them back to the UK. Being pretty heavy, I looked at a lot of different shipping options before remembering sendmybag, which turned out to be the cheapest option (and I knew it was reliable as I'd already sent a suitcase with them). My friend handed it over on Monday and on Wednesday morning it was on my doorstep, safe and sound!
