My Baggage provides a convenient shipping service to South Korea for your personal effects, which means you can send almost anything that you would typically find in your suitcase when travelling.

However, there are certain items that are known as Prohibited Items, which cannot be shipped to the South Korea on our service. There’s also certain items that are known as Non-Compensation Items, which can be sent on our service, but will not be covered by our compensation cover.

Below we have outlined important information about Prohibited Items, Non-Compensation Items, and recommendations for Packaging. Please review this carefully before placing your order.

My Baggage Packaging
There are a number of Prohibited Items that cannot be sent using our service. You can view them
Sending a Prohibited Item to South Korea will result in your shipment being returned to its original collection address, to which additional shipment fees will apply. In rare instances, depending on what the Prohibited Item is, the shipment may be disposed of.
There are certain items that can be sent on our service, however, they are classed as ‘Non-Compensation’ items. This means that they aren’t covered by our compensation cover. If you choose to send a non-compensation item on our service, this will be done at your own risk. Please also ensure that they are packaged securely and appropriately.
If a Prohibited Item is sent, it also falls under the category of 'Non-Compensation item'. You can view our full list
When sending Personal Effects to South Korea with us, we recommend using suitcases, or strong double-walled boxes that will be suitable for transit. If you are sending fragile or delicate items, we recommend using internal packaging to protect them during transit. You can use materials such as bubble wrap or newspapers.

Please do not use Plastic Boxes, Bin Bags, or Laundry Bags, as these are not suitable and would be considered as inappropriate packaging.

You should also avoid using fragile or expensive suitcases. Remember, packaging is a non-compensation item, and is not covered under our compensation cover.

South Korea Customs Information

When shipping personal effects or gifts to South Korea, you are legally required to complete and send a customs form with your shipment. Not including a customs form can lead to your shipment being unable to leave its country of origin, potentially causing it to be returned to the sender's address and incurring return shipping fees.

When you use My Baggage, your customs paperwork is automatically provided.

Below we have outlined some important customs regulations when shipping to South Korea, and some frequently asked questions. Please review this information carefully before placing an order.

South Korea Customs
Shipments to South Korea will be subject to customs checks and require a completed Customs Form.

My Baggage will generate customs forms that you must complete. These forms will be personalised for your shipment based on the information you provided during your order. You can access these forms in the ‘My Orders’ section of our website soon after your order has been paid for.
If your customs paperwork has been completed and submitted correctly, your shipment with My Baggage should clear customs in a timely manner, and arrive on the estimated delivery dates.

Every shipment is unique and will undergo an individual inspection by South Korea customs. Therefore, clearance times may vary between shipments and are dependent on multiple factors including customs values, reason for shipping, contents of the shipment, etc.
In addition to customs forms, shipments to South Korea require some additional documentation, including a copy of the receiver’s passport image page.

To avoid potential issues, it’s recommended that all documentation required by customs are in the name of the receiver, who should be the owner of the shipment. If any documentation is in the sender’s name, and this differs from the receiver’s name, customs may reject the shipment.

When shipping personal effects, please ensure that the names of both the sender and receiver match those of the shipment's owner.

If you’re a Korean citizen, you must obtain a 'personal customs clearance code' from the customs authority.
For shipments to South Korea you are required to declare the value of your items on your customs forms.

When completing your customs forms, it’s important that you do this accurately and clearly. In order to demonstrate that your shipment consists of personal effects, you must describe each item within your shipment. For example, you might declare:

4 x Used Black Men's Cotton T-Shirts
1 x Pair Used Brown Leather Shoes (size 8)
2 x Used Dark Blue Jeans Denim (size Small)
Occasionally customs fees may apply, but this depends on multiple factors, including the accuracy of the values declared on your customs forms. In the event that customs fees are due, our courier partner will reach out to you with a breakdown of the fees. These fees can then be paid online or over the phone through our courier partner, who will be liaising with South Korea Customs regarding your shipment aiming to expedite the clearance process, and get your shipment out for delivery as soon as possible.

When shipping to South Korea, the customs value should be kept low, ideally below 150,000 KRW (approximately £90 GBP / $120 USD) - this will help avoid additional fees or duties, and delays.

Whilst we can provide general information about customs, we recommend that you make yourself aware of potential customs duties in South Korea and be sure to follow any advice provided by customs.
We aim to deliver your items to South Korea within the advised delivery estimate. However, on rare occasions items can encounter delays when going through customs clearance. Therefore we don’t recommend sending time-sensitive items.
