Documents for international delivery

When shipping internationally, you need to attach the required paperwork to your package to avoid the potential of a returned parcel from customs.

Once an order is ready to dispatch, required documents (such as labels, invoices and customs documentation) should be printed and fastened to the exterior of the package.

More preparation tips

When shipping internationally it is important that all required paperwork is included in the shipment and ensuring the packing is sufficient to avoid potential damages while in transit.

When preparing a parcel for international delivery you should remember to:

  • Fasten labels in a visible place and make sure data is clearly visible/legible
  • Include an invoice inside the parcel for customs review that confirms the content and value
  • Apply further protection to the item to avoid damage during the transit period. Tip: Fill out containers with cushioning material like bubble wrap or polystyrene chips. Use a FRAGILE sticker if necessary.
