Italian Customs Information

When shipping from Italy to the UK or anywhere else in the EU, goods do not pass through customs clearance and therefore are not subject to import tax or duty. If, however, you’re sending to Italy from a country outside of the EU, such as Canada or the USA, you are then legally required to complete and send a customs invoice with your shipment.

Whether you are simply sending personal effects or a gift to a loved one; if your shipment does not have a customs invoice attached, it will not make it past your local country border, and you may have to pay return charges to get it back. Uni Baggage will automatically provide you with the appropriate customs documents for you to print, sign and attach to your shipment when you send luggage to Italy from outside the EU.

Generally, Uni Baggage shipments clear customs in a timely manner, free from duties and taxes, as most countries offer a generous duty-free allowance for personal effects. However, as customs processes and allowances are different around the world, and because Uni Baggage has no direct association with any customs authority; we do advise doing your own personal research into Italian customs regulations and quarantine before booking your shipment to Italy from outside of the EU. Please make yourself aware of potential customs duties in Italy and follow any advice provided by customs.

When completing your customs documents, it is important to do so properly and clearly. In order to demonstrate that your shipment consists of personal effects, you will be required to accurately describe each item included in the package. For example, you would declare: “4 x t-shirts, 2 x pairs of jeans, 3 x dresses” etc, as opposed to “10 x clothing”.


5 Tips For Shipping To Italy

  • Do your research on Italian quarantine and customs.
  • Find a reputable international removals/shipping service.
  • Don’t stop there, either – obtain more than one quote and compare!
  • Choose a service with transit times that best suit your needs.
  • Package all items securely with plenty of internal cushioning.

Other Methods Of Shipping To Italy

Transporting your luggage with Uni Baggage isn’t the only way to send all of your worldly belongings to Italy. There are other options available that may better suit your needs, depending on the reasons for your travels. Here are just a few alternative options:

Sea Freight To Italy

If you need to send a number of large items to Italy that may be otherwise difficult to transport – perhaps a sofa, a fridge or even your card – you might consider sea freight as a shipping option. Although typically a reasonably priced option, sea freight can be an exceptionally slow voyage, meaning you could be without your belongings for quite some time. Depending on the route of your shipment, you could be waiting for up to two months for your items to arrive. You will also need to consider the transportation of your items to and from ports, both departing and upon arrival in Italy, which can be rather costly.

Air Freight To Italy

Similar to sea freight, air freight allows you to easily transport exceptionally large, bulky items to Italy. Although a much faster option of transportation; air freight tends to be the more expensive option of the two, as it is charged by weight and volume. Again, you will also need to consider the transportation of your items to and from airports.

International Removals To Italy

Thinking of relocating to Italy on a permanent basis? You might consider sending all of your essential belongings with an international removals company. This method of shipping allows you to transport all of your luggage – including larger, bulkier items such as furniture – in one single go, and they can be there to meet you at your destination!
