Further Shipping Information to Africa

Transit Times

Transit times to Africa will vary greatly depending on the country in that you are shipping to.

For example parcel deliveries to Morocco will only take 2 days, whilst deliveries to countries such as Nigeria take 3 days, and countries such as Libya and Malawi take a bit longer to reach and therefore have a transit time of 5 days, pending customs clearance.

That means that depending on the destination, your parcel will usually take 2-5 days to be delivered, as long as it is not held up in customs. As a general rule you should expect import restrictions on food products, plants and medicines to most African countries, and you should be aware that you may need to provide additional paperwork, such as import licences, to clear these types of goods through customs.

Shipping Restrictions & Customs Clearance

All parcels to Africa will be subject to customs clearance, so you will need to send a customs invoice with your parcel, but don't worry because ParcelHero will help you generate the invoice when you book your delivery online. For more specific information about the customs clearance procedures please refer directly to the country's customs website or contact ParcelHero for assistance.
