Addressing your parcel to Myanmar
To ensure your parcel arrives at the correct location and doesn’t experience any major delays, you need to address your parcel to the specific format of the destination country. It’s also useful to include a recipient telephone number clearly marked on the parcel and to include your UK home address on the parcel. This is in the event of loss, delays or if your parcel is unable to cross customs controls. By including your address your parcel can be returned to you, however, be aware that your parcel delivery provider will not compensate you for this return.
Packaging for your parcel to Myanmar
Parcels usually experience some level of wear and tear as they transit across countries. To ensure your package arrives how you sent it without any breakages inside, it’s important you package your parcel appropriately. Wrap valuable items well in bubble-wrap and don’t show any indication if you are sending money via parcel. We recommend that you enclose all your important documents such as your custom declaration forms and any restriction verification or form within an enclosed slip that is attached to your parcel so to keep all important documents together in one convenient place. You should also remember to remove any previous labels that could still remain on your chosen parcel delivery box, as this can cause unnecessary confusion at border control and could find your parcel in the wrong destination. If you are sending items of high value, we recommend taking out insurance to cover them in case of emergency as parcel delivery companies cannot be held responsible for damage.
