Shipping goods to Cyprus from the UK
Cyprus is the third largest and third most populous island in the Mediterranean. The island has proved hugely popular among British tourists, thanks to its spectacular scenery and stunning beaches. Just a few hours’ flight from the UK, it’s no surprise Cyprus is a high-demand delivery destination.

How should I address my parcel for delivery to Cyprus?
Addressing your parcel to Cyprus is a straightforward process. Begin as you normally would, with the addressee name on the top line of the address, followed by the house number and street, then the postcode and region and ‘CYPRUS’ in block capitals at the bottom.
Which items can I send to Cyprus?
Cyprus is generally very dependent on imports. However, the Republic of Cyprus has clear rules and regulations about what can be sent in the post from the UK. Restricted items include:
- Rifles and repeating firearms, shotguns, air guns, air rifles and air pistols;
- Nuclear, chemical and toxic weapons;
- Goods used for illegal hunting of game;
- Counterfeit or false coins or currency notes.
If you’re still unsure, you can contact local Cypriot customs officials for clarification.
Do I need to deal with customs when sending packages from the UK to Cyprus?
Post-Brexit, we expect things to change slightly; you’ll likely need full customs clearance to ship to anywhere outside of the UK.
However, we have recently introduced paperless trade for customs invoices, removing the need for the customs invoice completely. The information is entered when we create the shipment data, allowing customs to start the clearance process as soon as we submit the shipment data to the carrier and create the shipping label.
Things to remember
If there is an issue making a delivery, it’s important the courier has the contact number of the recipient. Please provide a working phone number for the receiver, so that they can be contacted if necessary.
