About Portugal


Portugal is a southern European country situated on the Iberian Peninsula, bordering Spain. It is a country with a rich history of seafaring and discovery, and boasts a population of over 10 million. It is home to lively cities such as Lisbon and Porto.

The official language of Portugal is Portuguese, one of the world’s major languages spoken in various countries across the globe, including Brazil, Angola and Cape Verde.

Portugal is an increasingly popular destination among expats thanks to its stunning scenery, good food, culture, entertainment and favourable climate; all of these things contribute to a very enjoyable and beneficial lifestyle. Living in Portugal also offers many advantages from a financial point of view, making it a great place to start a new life.

Why Ship To Portugal?


Reasons My Baggage customers ship to Portugal:
  • To send personal belongings to study abroad.
  • Move your family abroad easily.
  • To send a care-package to a loved one in Portugal.
  • Ship your bags to relocate for business.
  • Send your luggage ahead of enjoying a relaxing holiday.
Whether you’re travelling to Portugal to relocate with family or for work, to enjoy a holiday, to study abroad or otherwise; My Baggage’s generous weight allowance and the fact that you can send as many items as you like with us can come in particularly useful. You can wave goodbye to expensive airline baggage fees and out-of-budget removals. Our convenient luggage shipping services allows you to bring many more possessions with you than if you were simply relying on a few checked pieces of luggage when flying.
My Baggage offers a welcomed alternative to airline baggage, and it’s not just because of the price. Shipping your baggage with us makes that tedious wait for the appearance of your suitcase at the luggage carousel a thing of the past. Not to mention the possibility of your suitcase not appearing at all. My Baggage ships your luggage quickly and safely.

As well, we offer a cost-effective alternative to traditional removals companies. All things considered, relocating to another country is an undeniably expensive process for many reasons. However, My Baggage allows you to cut your costs in one way, at least. For many people, it can be a much more affordable option to sell or donate most of their large, bulky items (such as furniture) and ship only their most essential belongings with us.

My Baggage allows you to ship a massive 66lb per suitcase or box at fantastic low rates. You’ll also be given the option to pay extra for even heavier items, if you need to.

5 Tips For Shipping To Portugal

  • Do your research on Portuguese quarantine and customs.
  • Find a reputable international removals/shipping service.
  • Don’t stop there, either – obtain more than one quote and compare!
  • Choose a service with transit times that best suit your needs.
  • Package all items securely with plenty of internal cushioning.

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
  • Perishable Foods
  • Plants
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 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 Box 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”.

Using the service and web site was very…Easy

Using the service and web site was very easy. The customer service, when I had questions, had real people answer the phones and emails quickly, were very helpful and answered my questions thoroughly. The entire process was easy and the actual delivery of my items from Seattle to Southern France only took two days, lightning fast!

Helpful on the phone

Pick up and delivery was easy and handled well. I called for help to make changes and for advice and it was easy to get through and get help I needed. When I started, I checked the prices but when I actually started adding my items to a booking, an emergency surcharge was added. It would have been nice to know there’ll price upfront. Since I booked with baggage in June also and had the same experience, perhaps it is time to just change the prices in the first place - before the boxes get packed.

Easy set-up, reassuring process, delivery on time

I was very impressed that every step of the process was confirmed as we went along--a lot of emails, but worth it as reassurance, and every one of those steps was followed through quickly. Time was tight on this shipment, and all went smoothly, on time, no problems.
