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 Burkina Faso Customs Information

General Customs Information

Personal effects are typically defined as used items that have been in the sender's possession for 6 months or more. Most countries grant a duty-free allowance for personal effects, which means that the majority of Send My Bag shipments are not stopped by customs.

You must show that you are sending only personal effects by completing a short non-generic packing list online, to be filled out as follows: "1 x Denim Jeans, 4 x Pairs of Leather Sandals, 5 x Cotton Shirt", and so on, rather than as "10 x Used Clothing".

If Burkinabe customs find brand new or commercial items in your shipment, you may be required to pay duties and taxes in order for your shipment to clear customs. If you are sending Christmas or birthday gifts to Burkina Faso please check with Burkinabe customs so you are aware of any customs duties that need to be paid, follow any advice given and attach all documentation required of you.

As customs processes and allowances differ depending on the country, we suggest travellers take 5 minutes to check how their own circumstances and what they are sending will be viewed under current Burkinabe customs regulations.

Further information is available on our customs information page.
