Greece, known for its beaches, is a country located in southeastern Europe. It is referred to as the cradle of Western civilization, due to its influential status in ancient times, being the birthplace of democracy and more. Athens, its capital and largest city, retains ancient landmarks, including the 5th-century B.C. Acropolis citadel with the Parthenon temple.

Greek Customs Information
When shipping from the UK to Greece or anywhere else in the EU, goods do not pass through customs clearance and therefore are not subject to import tax or duty. If, however, you’re sending to Greece from a country outside of the EU, such as the USA or Australia, you are then legally required to complete and attach a customs invoice to your shipment.
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 personal research into Greek customs regulations and quarantine before booking your shipment to Greece. Please make yourself aware of potential customs duties in Greece and be sure to follow any and all advice provided by customs directly.
When completing your customs documents, it is important to do so properly and clearly. In order to demonstrate that your shipment consists of personal effects, you will be required to accurately describe each item included in the package. For example, you would declare: “4 x t-shirts, 2 x pairs of jeans, 3 x dresses” etc, as opposed to “10x clothing”.
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 reason, 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
Please note that there are specific items which can be carried on our services, however, they may not be covered under our compensation cover and should be 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 any delicate 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 Greece.
What type of packaging can be used?
When sending your belongings to Greece 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.
