Customs in Portugal

As Portugal is part of the European Union, shipping from a country within the EU means that you won’t have to worry about customs clearance or duties and taxes. This isn’t the case from shipments from outside the EU – in these cases the packages will have to pass through customs as normal and duties and taxes will be applied to shipments worth more than €150.

When shipping internationally, paperwork is vital. One common mistake is with declaring the contents of the package – instead of declaring generally, such as “footwear”, it’s better to be specific, such as “woman’s leather shoes.”

Collection & Delivery

A package being collected

Courier Collection

When you’re sending a parcel, we can collect your parcel on the same day you make your booking throughout both the UK and Portugal. This is not the case for shipments that are particularly large or heavy, however, as these need to be booked at least a day in advance.

If you are not available or would rather not wait for a collection, you can drop off your parcel at one of the hundreds of drop-off points around the UK. This option is at your convenience, and is also cheaper than shipping directly, saving you even more money.

Portugal Delivery

We can’t tell you exactly when your parcel will be delivered – just that it will be between 9am and 7pm on normal working days. You can narrow that window down by using one of our timed delivery options, which allow you to request certain delivery slots.

Most of our courier partners will require a signature to confirm delivery. However, some couriers will instead leave your package in a safe place or with a neighbour. If you require proof of delivery for your shipment, please choose our signed-for upgrade when you make your booking.

Sending Gifts to Portugal

In much the same way as a normal parcel, when you’re sending a gift to Portugal from inside the European Union, there’s no need to worry about duties and taxes. For shipments from outside the EU, there is a gift exemption for parcels worth less than €45 – packages worth more than that will have fees applied as usual, which the receiver will be responsible for paying.

It’s important to be specific when declaring contents – if you’re not, your package could be delayed in clearing customs. To avoid this, ensure that your customs paperwork is clear – for example, instead of just calling the contents a gift, declare that your shipments contains “Gifts – Train set”, for example.

Large and Heavy Shipping to Portugal

Shipping Large parcels are no problem for – we’re experts in delivering oversized packages that weigh up to 1,000kg and are up to 270cm in length.

Our only requirements are that your shipment is appropriately packaged and that you book a day in advance. Parcels of a certain size do need to be on a pallet, however, and if you require a forklift truck or special provisions, please let us know in advance.

Packaging your Parcel

Shipping a package internationally is a complex process, during which your parcel will change hands regularly. To make sure that there are no problems in transit, it’s vital to properly package your parcel.

When packing your goods, there are three key points to keep in mind:


Using a new box is important – older boxes may be hiding weaknesses that could cause them to burst or collapse. For parcels that weigh more than 10kg, we suggest using a new, double corrugated cardboard box.

Safely packaging a parcel for international shipping


Individual items should be wrapped up separately before being placed into your box and surrounding with packing material like packing peanuts. No part of your goods should be touching the walls of your box, and nothing should move when shaking the box.


Using proper packing tape can help protect your box. Wrap three times around your box in a Union Flag pattern, with extra tape of the corners and seals – they are the weakest parts of your box. Add labels so that the barcode is clearly visible.
