Do I need to deal with customs when sending from the UK to South Korea?

Shipping to South Korea means that your parcels will need to be accompanied by the correct customs declaration forms, which can be confusing if you’ve not sent there before. Luckily, we’ll simplify things by sending you the documents you need along with your label once you’ve placed your order with us. Easy!

How much does it cost to send a parcel from the UK to South Korea?

Postage to South Korea starts at prices as low as £11.13 if you book through DPDLocal-Online. 

How should I address my parcel for delivery to South Korea?

The Universal Postal Union advises adding “SEOUL” before the postcode on packages that are sent to South Korea. That’s because you’ll need to address the package to the country’s formal title “THE REPUBLIC OF KOREA”, and without Seoul as an added city name, there is a small chance that your parcel could be sent instead to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, otherwise known as North Korea.

Check out this detailed addressing guide for South Korea for more information.

What items can I send?

There’s a number of items that aren’t permitted for entry into South Korea, including things like:

  • Print materials
  • Weapons (including toys and replicas)
  • Narcotics
  • Products of wildlife protected under the Washington Convention (e.g. tortoise shell, reptile skin)
  • Currency and cheques

You’ll find the extensive list here. It’s also worth checking out our prohibited items page for a list of goods that you won’t be able to send with our couriers.
