Fast delivery, easy to use
I used your service to send a bag from the south of Spain to a remote island in Scotland, which is not the most common route.
I had a doubt about the type of bag that I could send, so I contacted customer service via chat and Christopher was very kind to solve it.
After that, I sent my bag and it got to its destination within a week, which is faster than expected. Tracking is easy through the links they provide and very helpful.
The items and the bag are all in a perfect state.

I recommend using Send My bag over travelling with your luggage, as there are less size restrictions, they take good care of your belongings and they collect and send from remote locations.

Important Afghanistan Customs Information

General Customs Information

Since most countries allow a substantial amount of personal items to enter their country duty free, sending personal effects only is usually straightforward, and Send My Bag shipments are rarely stopped by customs.

Personal effects are generally considered to be used items that have been owned by the sender for 6 months or more. You must demonstrate to customs officials that your shipment is made up of personal effects by creating a short non-generic packing list online, to be written as follows: "6 x Cotton Blouse, 3 x Woollen Jumper, 2 x Pairs of Leather Boots, ", etc., rather than as "10 x Used Clothing".

If local customs find brand new or commercial items in your shipment, it may be assessed for customs duties and taxes. You should bear this is mind if you are sending gifts to Afghanistan. Please check with local customs so you are aware of any duties that need to be paid, take note of any advice given and provide all documentation required of you.

We advise travellers to take a few minutes to see how their circumstances and what they are sending will be viewed by local customs at their destination, as customs rules vary according to country.

Further information can be found on our customs information page.
