Vatican City

Vatican City, surrounded by Rome, is the smallest internationally recognised state in the world, both by area and population. It is home to the Pope, and is thus the headquarters of Roman Catholicism. As a major global figurehead, the Pope gets a lot of mail, which is why courier services to Vatican City are always in high demand, despite the state’s minuscule stature.

What else do you need to know...

Do I need to deal with customs when sending from the UK to Vatican City?

Though the Vatican City is in Rome, the rules that apply when sending a parcel through Italy don't carry over. It isn’t a part of the European Union or the EU single market, and it isn’t in EU customs territory, which means you’ll need to attach a declaration form to your parcel when posting to Vatican City.

Not to worry, though. When you place an order with us, we’ll send you the documents you need to get your parcel from A to B without any trouble.

How much does it cost to send a parcel from the UK to Vatican City?

Postage to Vatican City starts from as low as £20.80 with Parcel2Go. Better still, we offer a Lowest Price Guarantee on parcel deliveries with Europe, meaning that in the unlikely event you find a price lower than ours, we’ll match it!

How should I address my parcel for delivery to Vatican City?
