Customs - Greece

The UK is no longer part of the EU’s single market and customs union and differing rules apply. This means there will be changes to how you send and receive items from abroad and as of 1 July 2021, items imported to the EU with a value of €22 or less became liable for VAT. For more information on how to send goods to EU countries more effectively click here.

You are responsible for checking postal restrictions and prohibitions for your destination.

There are rules about what Royal Mail will carry and each country has their own restrictions which may differ, so it’s important to check both.

Check the status of deliveries around the world on our International Incident Bulletin

 
Prohibited and Restricted items to Greece

Prohibited items are forbidden and must not be sent.
Restricted items are allowed under certain conditions.

Prohibitions and restrictions vary from country to country and can sometimes apply to items which you may think are ordinary so please check the criteria carefully. 

Please ensure that you follow the below guidelines before sending your items to Greece

  • Royal Mail prohibits and restricts certain categories of items, please click here to check that your item is allowed within our network. 
  • Each post around the world must follow the Universal Postal Union (UPU) rules applicable to letter post and postal parcels regarding prohibited and restricted items. To identify whether your item is allowed, please visit Article 19 which contains a detailed list of items that are not admitted in the International mail flow here.
  • The destination country also set their own rules around which items are prohibited and/or restricted. To check that your item is allowed to be sent to Greece please visit the UPU Country specific list here and scroll down to Greece.
  • You can also use the UPU CDS search function here.  

Please note: Specific Country restrictions and changes may be enforced at short notice, so for any clarification please contact the destination country’s trade, postal and customs authorities as appropriate. Royal Mail have no control over UPU and Country specific restrictions regarding prohibited and restricted items and it is your responsibility to check whether your items are allowed.

Additional information

If an item destined for Greece can be cleared automatically using the data provided, the only thing collected from the recipient is the VAT (if applicable) with no additional handling charges. 

If an item destined for Greece can not be cleared automatically due to the data provided being incomplete, the post will need to manually input the customs data. In this scenario as well as the VAT, the recipient is also charged handling fees that vary depending on value, see here (pdf, 208.49 KB) for the amounts. This applies equally to IOSS items that do not have complete data, however these items will not be charged VAT.

Also to note: If an item contains certain restricted goods eg health supplements, the Greece post will write to the recipient and request they present the necessary certification.  They have 20 days to respond. There is no charge for this.

Remember to use the correct address format 

Put the five-digit postcode on the same line and before the city/locality name, with a space between the third and fourth digits.

Please write 'GREECE' in capital letters on the last line of the address.

Example: 

Mrs Anthea DEMETRIOU 
Alkamenou 78 
157 840 ATHENS 
GREECE

To help facilitate customs clearance, it is recommended that you provide recipient contact details (email address and/or phone number) so that recipients are contactable if any information is missing or incorrect. Contact details should be provided within the electronic customs data or in the case of a CN23 on the physical declaration. To ensure this information is protected do not write these contact details separately on the outside item.
