Several parties are involved in the import of goods into Germany. For example, the importer, the exporter and, if applicable, the customs agent. It must be ensured that all documents required for customs clearance are available when the consignment arrives in Germany.


The responsible customs office collects so-called import duties. These are Gift consignments are usually not a purchase or sale, but a gratuitous consignment. However, a gift consignment does not exempt you from checking whether the consignment can be legally imported into the country of destination.


It is advisable to inform the recipient of the gift consignment in advance that they will be receiving a consignment and whether there are any import restrictions. If in doubt, the recipient should clarify this in advance with the customs authorities.


Even if you do not receive payment for a gift consignment, the consignment still has a value of goods. This value of goods must be declared correctly in any case. Otherwise, the customs authorities are entitled to estimate the value. In times of the internet, this estimation is relatively easy to carry out. Therefore, you should avoid making false declarations from the outset to avoid delays and additional costs.


The shipment of alcohol, medicines, food and plants is generally problematic and should be avoided.




Sending gifts is a wonderful way to show closeness and share special moments. With the right planning, careful packaging, and the appropriate shipping service, you can surprise your loved ones in a very special way and bring joy.
