Postage to Jersey
The island of Jersey is one of the Channel Islands which lie in the English Channel between Great Britain and France. There are other Islands nearby, including Guernsey, Sark, Alderney and Herm. The island is part of the British Isles, so your parcel will be subject to the same Customs regulations as any other parcel you send within the UK. With its strong British culture and reputation as an offshore tax haven, even with its small population of around 100,000, a lot of parcels are sent to Jersey every year.
If you're looking for parcel delivery to Jersey, you'll need to know the ins and outs of the process. You need to take a few things into account before sending your package, so it arrives at its destination safely and on time. And just as important is for it to be sent as cheaply as possible, so whether you're sending your parcel to Jersey for personal or business reasons, we have you covered.
Here at Packlink, we want to make sure that your parcel arrives safely and hassle-free, so we've put together this guide to help you navigate the process.
Key Information Regarding Postage to Jersey
Jersey is now a member of the UK Customs Union as a result of the Brexit arrangement ratified at the end of 2020. This means that there aren't any tariffs levied on items sent to the island from the UK. Previously as it wasn't part of the European Union, it was classed as international postage to Jersey, but this has now changed for the better.
As most imported goods tend to be sent from the UK, this is a desirable development for anyone sending goods to Jersey. This means that for all imports from the UK, which covers the majority of movement of the island's post, there are no Customs tariffs applied, and clearly, this is desirable.
This also means that the items prohibited when you send a parcel to Jersey are the same as the banned goods you would not be able to send to other domestic destinations in the UK.
Addressing Your Parcel
When it comes to addressing your shipments to Jersey, the island follows the exact same rules that apply to the UK. This means that your address should include the name and full postal address, including the postcode, which in Jersey begins with JE.
As with the UK, weekends are non-working days, and though they share most of the same holidays, they do have some unique to the island, so make sure you check that your parcel can be delivered on the day you choose.
