Once occupied by Japan, South Korea’s global influence continues to rise as its culture and economy gain more and more traction. The recent “K-pop” breakthrough hit Gangnam Style put South Korea on the musical map, drawing the world’s eyes to Seoul, now the world’s second largest city, just losing out to Tokyo. Since it’s located over in East Asia, it’s easy to assume that parcel delivery to South Korea would be not only difficult, but expensive too.

What else do you need to know...
Do I need to deal with customs when sending from the UK to South Korea?
Shipping to South Korea means that your parcels will need to be accompanied by the correct customs declaration forms, which can be confusing if you’ve not sent there before. Luckily, we’ll simplify things by sending you the documents you need along with your label once you’ve placed your order with us. Easy!
How much does it cost to send a parcel from the UK to South Korea?
Postage to South Korea starts at prices as low as £14.85 if you book through Parcel2Go. That’s because we work with more couriers than any other UK comparison service, meaning we can offer far more quotes to choose from. That way, you can find one that suits your needs as well as your budget!
How should I address my parcel for delivery to South Korea?
The Universal Postal Union advises adding “SEOUL” before the postcode on packages that are sent to South Korea. That’s because you’ll need to address the package to the country’s formal title “THE REPUBLIC OF KOREA”, and without Seoul as an added city name, there is a small chance that your parcel could be sent instead to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, otherwise known as North Korea.
