Before You Ship to Austria

But before you send a parcel to Austria, it’s always important to check the country’s customs regulations, so you don’t send anything that could hold up your parcel. Another way to avoid delays is to make sure you don’t ship on Austria’s public holidays, as this could see your parcel arriving a day or two later than you expected.

Austria Gift Delivery and Customs Duty

When you send a parcel to Austria, you may need to pay EU VAT depending on what your parcel contains, the parcel’s value and the circumstances of why you sent it.

If your postage to Austria is subject to EU VAT, the standard rate is 20%. But there are exceptions to paying EU VAT.

For example, if you’re sending a gift to Austria from one individual to another, i.e. not sent directly from a marketplace or business, that is under the value of €45 (about £39) then it won’t be subject to EU VAT.
