Sending a Parcel to Sri Lanka

Sending parcels to Sri Lanka from the UK can be a quick and easy process, but it's important that you follow the correct steps. Below, you'll find some of the most useful packaging tips.

If you wrap up your parcel carefully and pack it securely, then there's no reason why it can't reach its destination in perfect condition. The most important thing is ensuring your parcel is properly packaged and labelled.

Also, be aware of the weight limit and import restrictions for sending a parcel to Sri Lanka and whether you need to pay any customs duties on the items inside.

You can choose to drop off your parcel in person at the post office, or you can send it through a courier service.

Customs, Rules, and Regulations for Shipping to Sri Lanka

Like in every other country, you need to be aware of the customs and rules for shipping to Sri Lanka. If you're sending your parcel from the UK, it will be subject to UK customs regulations when it leaves the country. You may also have to pay import duties and taxes when it reaches Sri Lanka.

It's important that you know how much this will cost before sending your parcel overseas so that you can budget accordingly.

Also, you may need to provide documentation for customs clearance. There are a few different types of documentation that you can use to clear your parcel through customs.

You can use a commercial invoice, which is a document that includes the value of the goods being shipped and their description. This is used to determine how much import duty you have to pay. You may also need to provide a packing list and/or customs declaration form.

How Long Does It Take To Send a Parcel to Sri Lanka?

The transit time will depend on the service you choose, the type of parcel you're sending, and how much time it takes to get through customs.

But typically, if you send your package using a courier service provider, it will take around 3-4 business days to arrive in Sri Lanka. However, it could take longer if there's a backlog of parcels waiting to be processed or if there's a problem with the customs clearance.

What Items Can You Send to Sri Lanka

It's always important to check the restrictions and prohibitions on what you can send in a parcel to Sri Lanka before you do so. There are a number of items that are prohibited or restricted by customs regulations. Some of these include:

  • Alcoholic drinks and cigarettes (unless they're for personal use only)
  • Meat products, including beef, lamb and pork
  • Drugs, including prescription drugs
  • Any items that could cause a risk to public health (e.g. electronic cigarettes)
  • Pornographic material or publications of an obscene nature
  • Arms, ammunition, explosives and fireworks

You can find a comprehensive list of prohibited items on the Sri Lanka Customs website. It's worth checking before you even purchase your item, as a range of restricted items may require special permission before you send them.
