Frequently asked questions
We're there to help as soon as we can. We've put together a list of FAQs that may just provide an answer to your question.
Will the person receiving my parcel pay import duty?
Some countries require the recipient of your parcel to pay import duty of taxes on the shipment. The Dutch Tax and Customs Authority's customs page lists customs per country.
Can I arrange an international business shipment?
Absolutely. If you're shipping to a country with customs clearance, you must stick three invoices onto your parcel. Other requirements, such as commodity codes, will be displayed automatically in My DHL Portal. If you're sending a commercial parcel worth more than €1,000, you'll need to open a DHL business account – it's quick and easy.
