Customs and Brexit - Slovakia

From 1 January 2021, the UK is no longer part of the EU’s single market and customs union and new rules apply. The UK extended the rules which only applied to non-EU postal items before, to include items received from the EU. Similarly, the EU now treats postal items from the UK as it did non-EU items before. This means there may be changes to how you send and receive items from abroad.

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.

Can I send it to Slovakia?

There are some items you can't send to Slovakia, or might be restricted.

You must not send any item addressed to a country in which the item is unlawful or prohibited. When an item is restricted you must comply with the restriction. Prohibitions and restrictions vary from country to country, and can sometimes apply to items which you may think are ordinary. The information below is provided in good faith, but Royal Mail is not responsible for it, and it should be viewed as a guide only.
