From Friday 1st January 2021, the requirement for accurate customs documentation for items containing goods sent to Rest of World addresses will also apply to European destinations and the Channel Islands. When mailing items containing goods to outside of the UK, you will need to accurately complete and sign a customs declaration. If sending items using a Parcelforce service a CP72 needs to be completed.
For more information about customs declaration requirements please visit our dedicated page.

Due to the evolving exceptional circumstances, Parcelforce are closely monitoring the situation at an individual country level. Because of this, they are also suspending their international delivery guarantees as they may experience some delivery delays. Please note that the majority of their international partners are also suspending requirements for signature on delivery, and therefore they are unable to guarantee to you that signature on delivery will be obtained outside of the UK.
They are still processing your international parcels until they are informed otherwise by their overseas partners. In the majority of cases their services are continuing as normal. Details of any country suspensions and the latest updates are available at parcelforce.com/service-updates. Please note that there are some regions/pockets within countries where parcels are currently unable to be processed by their partners and are therefore being exported back. Please check their service updates page for information and check your recipient will be able to receive your parcel, before you send.
