Courier services to Portugal from €11.99
Portugal's role in European trade has been major since around the 15th century, during which the country was considered to be one of the strongest economic powers in the world. A good strategic geographical location, as well as a great relationship with its neighbor, Spain, has allowed Portugal to maintain its economic integrity to this very day.
According to statistics, these days their main export partners include Spain, France, Germany, the UK and the US, with most of the imports coming from Spain, Germany, France, Italy and the Netherlands. Obviously, such major exchange of goods means that parcel delivery to Portugal is a service which interests a number of businesses as well as personal senders.

What you should know about Portuguese customs
Being a longtime member of the EU, Portugal follows the standard import rules for its members. Depending on where you're sending your parcel from, there are some important customs rules you should know about.
Imports from other EU member states
As you can expect, imports coming to Portugal from fellow EU member states generally follow a less strict procedure and don't require any special customs duty. A general checkup is usually enough for a parcel to go through.
Imports from the UK
Because of Brexit, the UK is now considered to be a foreign import territory by the EU. Even though a trade agreement was signed between the two parties, parcels shipped from the UK do require additional customs duty, documentation and taxes.
If you want to send a parcel to Portugal from the UK, you will need:
- A commercial invoice - this document, sometimes also called a Customs declaration, is required by the British government for every shipment leaving the Kingdom and entering the EU.
- A designated EORI number - this unique ID is mandated as a means of tracking your shipment while it's within EU territory.
Items you can send to Portugal
As a member of the Union, Portugal follows pretty strict rules on what can and cannot be imported to the country. Below, we will talk about the items that are outright banned from import as well as those that, while not completely forbidden, do require special licenses or documentation to enter the country.
We highly recommend studying this list of items so you won't encounter any problems with your parcel later down the road.
Forbidden items to Portugal
The following items are banned from import to the country under any circumstances:
- All types of medicinal drugs
- Explosives and explosive materials
- Radioactive material
- Narcotic substances
- Offensive weapons
Restricted items to Portugal
- Food products
- Animal products
- Firearms and ammunition
- Alcoholic beverages
- Tobacco and Tobacco products
For more information, we recommend contacting the official Portuguese customs website available at: eportugal.gov.pt/en/
How long does it take for a parcel to arrive in the country?
Typically, this depends on the type of offer you select from one of our courier partners in Europe, but an average delivery usually takes around 1-3 days to complete.
For customers that prefer speed, express delivery options are their best bet if they want to send a parcel to Portugal as soon as possible. However, this does mean that you'll have to pay a bit more, since your parcel will be prioritized against others.
If time isn't that big of an issue for you and the party that you're sending a parcel to is willing to wait, then you might just be right off with a regular shipping to Portugal option. While it will take a few days more for a delivery to be complete, you will save a reasonable sum on your delivery.
It's important to note, however, that some of our partners may offer special deals for deliveries going to big cities, especially during the holiday season. This may result in a delivery that's optimal in both price and time.
What about the price to send a parcel to Portugal?
Our partner offers start around €11.99. The exact price, as with the delivery time, will depend on the type of offer you select.
Naturally, express delivery options cost a bit more, while ensuring a more rapid delivery, while regular ones take a bit longer, but allow you to save some money on your shipments.
Important things to know about parcel volume and weight
Measurements and weight are an important factor to keep in mind when shipping out a delivery to Portugal. For EU members the typical limit for weight of a single parcel is either 30 or 50 kilograms.
We realize that sometimes senders (especially businesses) are keen on sending items that are way heavier than that, which may raise questions on how to fit in within this threshold. Luckily, we have a great solution for that.
Simply split an item you're sending into multiple parts weighing less than the limit of a single parcel. Let's say your items weigh in at just approximately 95 kilograms. You can split your item into 4 parcels (30 kg + 30 kg + 30 kg + 5 kg) to stay within the restriction.
While this does mean you will pay a bit extra for your delivery, you will won't violate any rules.
Can I track my shipment?
Yes you can. To do this, simply enter your unique parcel tracking ID right on our website after your shipment gets picked up from your pick up point to see the latest info.
Usually, new information appears almost immediately, but there's no need to panic even if you don't see any updates in the first couple of hours.
This is because most of our courier partners use handheld scanners to check every outgoing parcel traveling to another country. Since thousands of items get shipped everyday (especially during peak shipping seasons) some delays might occur for your tracking information.
We assure that information about your parcel will appear within 24 hours.
It's been more than a day, but I don't see anything. What's happened?
If you don't see any new information about your parcel appearing after the first 24 hours, be sure to contact our support team immediately. It could be that there's an issue with the labeling of your shipment or it got damaged.
Will my parcels be insured?
Yes, regardless of the destination, all of our shipments come with a standard €100 insurance coverage. However, some senders, especially businesses, tend to ship out items that are priced above that sum. In this case, we highly recommend purchasing additional coverage to ensure maximum safety for your valuables.
