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.

Sending Personal effects to China

When sending your items to China it is extremely important that you understand that your items will be inspected by Chinese customs authorities who will assess your shipment. We are not in control of this process and cannot speed up or change the customs process. Chinese customs and our courier partner may get in touch with you directly to verify any of the information you supply therefore it is crucial that you provide the relevant documentation.

If your shipment is stopped by customs in China, this can on average delay your shipment by 1-10 working days.

Whilst we only give basic advice in regards to customs, it is always your responsibility to ensure you are using the right documentation as different regions in China may require different information.

The value limit on a Personal effects shipment is approximately CNY 800.00 (about $125) we strongly recommend keeping your items’ value beneath this as if your value exceeds this, you cannot have your items cleared as personal effects and may be subject to a heavy penalty.

In addition to your normal proforma invoice found in your “My Orders” section, we recommend including the following to help your item clear customs.

You must be present in China during the customs process, as customs may require you to provide additional information during the clearing process.

  • A copy of your passport photo page and copies of any exit/entry visa stamps.
  • Any work visas that you may be travelling to China under
  • Residence permits
  • Detailed inventory, either in English or Chinese. Items must be listed exactly what they are, terms such as gifts, miscellaneous, household items, used clothes etc. are not allowed. Inadequate descriptions on the inventory list will cause additional inspections and possibly penalties by Chinese customs.
  • Baggage Declaration Form which is available upon your arrival in China. This is normally available from the arrival airport in China and should be reviewed by customs before leaving the airport. Please take a copy of your tracking number and order details as this may be needed. The local courier(DHL) will normally arrange for you to send this to them for the clearance process

For returning Chinese citizens:

  • Chinese residence certificate
  • Copy of original passport
  • Copy of any visas/green cards verifying your residency abroad for a minimum of 12 months.
  • Detailed inventory, either in English or Chinese. Items must be listed exactly what they are, terms such as gifts, miscellaneous, household items, used clothes etc. are not allowed. Inadequate descriptions on the inventory list will cause additional inspections and possibly penalties by Chinese customs.
  • Baggage Declaration Form which is available upon your arrival in China. This is normally available from the arrival airport in China and should be reviewed by customs before leaving the airport. Please take a copy of your tracking number and order details as this may be needed. The local courier(DHL) will normally arrange for you to send this to them for the clearance process

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:

  • Aerosols
  • Animal Products
  • Cash, Credit Cards, Debit Cards
  • Dangerous Goods
  • Hazardous Goods
  • Liquids
  • Medicines
  • Passports or other confidential personal documentation

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.

Find out more about My Baggage’s prohibited and non-compensation 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.
