Before You Ship to Portugal

We’ll send you all the paperwork you need to breeze through customs. But before shipping to Portugal from the UK, we always recommend getting to know Portugal’s customs regulations so your parcel doesn’t experience any holdups at the border. And make sure you don’t post to Portugal on the country’s non-working days (Saturday and Sunday) and national holidays as this could delay your parcel’s arrival.

How much is customs duty in Portugal?

Because the UK is no longer in the EU, there may be extra charges involved with posting to Portugal. If you need to pay EU VAT on your shipment to Portugal, it will usually be 23% of the package’s value. 

But there are exceptions to this rule. For example, if the parcel you’re sending is a gift under the value of €45 (around  £40), sent directly from you to a loved one, then you won’t have to pay any duty or taxes when you ship to Portugal!

Our customer service team is available to help you 24/7 if you have any questions about the shipping process.
