Customs information for parcels to Hungary
Since Hungary is an EU member, the country has pretty strict import rules from different regions. Here, we will cover all the basics that you need to know for shipments to Hungary, from various places of origin.
EU member imports
When it comes to EU to EU deliveries, the restrictions are usually more laid back than those for imports coming from other regions and no special customs duty is applied. The same applies in Hungary as well, as a typical checkup is basically all that's needed.
Since the UK is no longer a member of the EU, imports from the UK to Hungary are treated as those coming in from non-EU regions, which results in additional customs duty as well as heavier restrictions and more taxes.
For shipments from the UK to Hungary, you'll need the following documents:
- Commercial invoice - a Commercial invoice, otherwise known as a Customs declaration is required by the UK government for all shipments leaving the UK and entering EU territory.
- EORI number - this ID number will be used to track your shipment when it travels in the EU.
What can I ship to Hungary?
Like other members of the EU, Hungary forces restrictions on certain items coming into the country. We recommend carefully studying the list of items that are either restricted or outright banned before packing your parcel for delivery.
Banned import items to Hungary
Below is a list of items that are banned by the Hungarian government for import to the country, without any exceptions.
- All types of alcoholic beverages
- Animal skins and products
- Bearer and diplomatic documents
- Coffee (including samples)
- Perishable goods
Heavily-controlled import items to Hungary
Unlike many other EU countries, Hungary has pretty loose rules when it comes to imports of items that aren't banned outright. In fact, it is said that around 95 percent of items coming into the country don't need a license at all.
Restrictions are set on these product types, however:
- Firearms and military equipment
- Radioactive materials and others.

Parcel dimensions and weight restrictions to Hungary
When it comes to volumetric weight and size, these are very important factors in order to send a parcel to Hungary following the same rules as other members of the union, where a 30 or 50 kilogram limit is placed for one shipment.
It's not uncommon however that those sending the items, especially businesses, want to ship parcels that are heavier than that, but find themselves in violation of these restrictions. Luckily, we know how to solve this.
All you have to do is split the parcel into multiple parts and you will be good to go. Let's say you're sending something that weighs in at around 130 kilograms. Separating them into parts of 30 kg + 30 kg + 30 kg + 10 kg) will cost a bit extra, but will allow you to follow the rules.
What's the typical delivery time to Hungary?
Largely, this depends on the type of offer you've selected from one of our courier partners. In general, 1-3 days is the optimal average that many couriers follow.
If you're focused entirely on speed of delivery, purchasing an express delivery option will likely be your best bet in terms of quickness. However, this does usually cost a bit more compared to a regular shipping option.
Speaking of a typical shipping option, if the delivery speed doesn't concern you too much, it could be a wonderful way for you to save money on your parcel shipments. Simply select the cheapest one from our list and you'll find yourself with an economical solution.
It's important to note that sometimes companies can offer great deals that involve both speed and cost-savings, especially when it comes to deliveries to larger cities of a country. So, be on the lookout for any special deals that interest you.
Do we offer the ability to track parcels?
At EcoParcel, we do offer the ability to track a parcel to Hungary. When your order has been picked up by one of our partner couriers, you can see a unique tracking ID to see the latest information relating to it including updates, history and so on.
Are tracking problems a common occurrence?
Though rarely, sometimes issues with shipment tracking can happen. The most common problems occur with update delays, so if you don't immediately see information on your parcel, there's no need to worry.
Why updates get delayed:
- Your parcel hasn't been picked up yet
It's yet to be scanned by one of our partners. Most companies that we work with, carefully scan each outgoing parcel with handheld devices, which means that updates will appear on the website only after being scanned. First updates will surely appear within 24 hours.
It's been 24 hours, but I can't see any news. What might be the issue?
If that's the case, contact us as soon as you can. It could be that your parcel got damaged or something went wrong with its label.
Are all of my parcels to Hungary insured?
Yes they are. For every shipment we offer a standard coverage of €100. Quite often, however, we see that people send more expensive items than that. If that's the case, be sure to purchase additional insurance just to be more secure.
What is the pricing to send a parcel to Hungary?
Our prices usually start from about €11.99. The exact price, however, will depend on the offer you've selected, as we've mentioned earlier.
Express options will usually be more costly, but will get your item there faster, whereas cheaper options will allow you to save money, but will take a bit more to deliver your parcel.
