Japan Customs and Gift Delivery

Do customs apply when sending mail to Japan? The answer’s yes - but don’t panic, we’re here to help you organise gift delivery to Japan that’s hassle-free!

You will need to provide information for a customs declaration on your parcel when it arrives in Japan. Helpfully, your Japan courier services can handle the process for you. All you need to do is pay your parcel delivery fees and provide all the information they’ll need, and they can take care of customs administration  on your behalf.

You may have to pay customs duties and / or VAT on your items when you send. This depends on the total value of your parcel delivery and items together. You can consult the Japan Customs Website to see if you’ll incur any customs fees.
