Customs Information for Italy Parcel Delivery

Your parcel delivery to Italy will require customs documentation and be subject to additional import charges. Italy’s VAT rate is 22% of the total value of your shipment.

However, if you send a gift valued no more than £39/€45 (Note: the gift’s total value includes the shipping cost), you won’t be charged additional fees. Remember that this only counts if your item is sent from one individual to another.

Services may ask for a commodity code. This is sometimes referred to as a HS or Tariff code, and is used to identify your parcel’s contents so customs officials can check they're safe and legal, and calculate any duties owed. Find a commodity code for your parcel in the booking process.

See more on information on Italy customs regulations in our customs advice page or contact our customer service team with any question you may have.
