Chinese Customs Information
When shipping goods to China, you are legally required to complete and send a customs declaration with your shipment. Whether you’re sending personal effects or a gift to a loved one; if your shipment does not have a customs invoice attached, it will not make it past your local country border, and you may have to pay return charges to get it back. My Baggage will automatically provide you with the appropriate customs documents for you to complete, print, sign and attach to your shipment when you send your luggage to China.
Generally, My Baggage shipments clear customs in a timely manner, free from duties and taxes, as most countries offer a generous duty-free allowance for personal effects. However, as customs processes and allowances are different around the world, and because My Baggage has no control over any decisions made, we do advise doing your own research into Chinese customs regulations and quarantine before booking your shipment to China. Please make yourself aware of potential customs duties in China.
PERSONAL EFFECTS LIMIT TO MAINLAND CHINA IS $125.
Please note that if your shipment exceeds this limit, it cannot be cleared as personal effects and may incur additional charges. Furthermore, all shipments of personal effects will incur a 24-48 hour delay as these type of shipments require additional processing.
Prohibited and Non-Compensation Items
My Baggage gives you the freedom to ship your personal belongings all over the world, meaning you can send almost everything you would typically find in a standard holiday suitcase. However, for security and customs reasons, there are certain items which are prohibited and cannot be carried; as is standard with most shipping companies.
As a general rule, you can be sure that the following items are prohibited:
- Animal Products
- Cash, Credit Cards, Debit Cards
- Dangerous Goods
- Hazardous Goods
- Passports or other confidential personal documentation
- Perishable Foods
When sending to China, the following items are also prohibited:
- Animal Skins
- Biological Substances
- Gambling Devices
- Military Equipment
- Precious Metals and Stones
- Radar Transmitters/Receivers
You should also be aware that although some items can be carried on our services, some are not covered under our compensation cover and so are sent at your own risk. If you choose to send any non-compensation items, please ensure they are packaged appropriately, with plenty of internal packaging for fragile items.

Please note that import allowances, security and customs processes differ all around the world; we recommend that you do your own personal research into what may be prohibited in your destination country before booking your shipment to China.
What type of packaging can be used?
When sending your belongings to China with My Baggage, we recommend using either suitcases or strong boxes to package your items so as they are suitable for transit.
We advise against using fragile or expensive suitcases, as packaging is not covered under our compensation cover. With regards to boxes, it’s always best to invest in a new, sturdy, double-walled cardboard box as they are most durable and 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.
