Before Shipping to Australia

Before sending a parcel to Australia, you should check if your parcel’s contents are eligible to be imported. You can do this by either checking the Australian Customs website or referring to our prohibited items list.

It's also recommended to check public holidays and non-working days in Australia to avoid any unexpected delays on your parcel delivery. If your parcel is due for delivery on these days, it may be paused and only delivered on the next working day.

Australia Customs Information

When sending a parcel to Australia, be sure to fill out all required customs paperwork; luckily, DPD sends all documentation upon booking.

Duties and taxes depend on the value, the item(s), and the purpose of shipment. If your parcel is valued at $1000AUD or less, there are no additional charges unless it includes alcohol. If your parcel is valued over $1000AUD, you’ll need to lodge an Import Declaration. Australian Customs will then let you know how much duty and taxes you may need to pay.

For further help, see our customs advice page, or get in touch with our Customer Service team.
