    Customs Clearance in Africa

    A customs invoice is needed for all items delivered to Africa. This will need to be attached to the parcel before delivery. Here at P4D we create all the necessary documentation for you during the booking process. We recommend that you complete all booking fields accurately and clearly label your parcel to avoid potential delays.

    Unfortunately, the following African countries have recently experienced significant problems at Customs, placing them on the Suspended Services list. Angola, Benin, Botswana, Burundi, Cameroon, Central African Rep, Congo, Congo, Dem. Rep., Gabon, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sudan and Zimbabwe.

    In the future we hope that these parcel delivery issues are resolved and courier services can continue once again.  

    There are many restrictions and prohibited items when delivering to Africa. We highly recommend that you thoroughly check all local restrictions and prohibitions before sending your parcel.
