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
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 Portugal.
What type of packaging can be used?
When sending your belongings to Portugal 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.

Other Ways Of Shipping To Portugal
Of course, there are various ways of shipping to Portugal, and it is important to make yourself aware of all of the available options, as some may be better suited to your personal circumstances. Here are just a few alternative ways for you to choose from:
Traditional International Removals
If you happen to be relocating to Portugal on a permanent basis, perhaps with family or for work, you might consider transporting your possessions with a reputable international removals company. It’s the ideal option if you need to send a number of large, bulky items.
Ultimately, the cost and timescale of your shipment depends entirely on the scale of your move – it can vary greatly. Many traditional international removals companies will offer convenient door to door collection and delivery services – though it’s worth nothing that some may require you to arrange transportation of your belongings to and from ports.
Send A Parcel To Portugal
Not only does My Baggage ship personal effects to Portugal, but we can send parcels and gifts, too. Why not send a thoughtful care-package to your loved one living overseas?
Portuguese Customs Information
When shipping from the UK to Portugal 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 Portugal 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 Portuguese customs regulations and quarantine before booking your shipment to Portugal. Please make yourself aware of potential customs duties in Portugal 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 “10 x clothing”.
