Taiwan, which is officially called the Republic of China, is part of East Asia and therefore Taiwan parcel delivery from the UK is classified as an international delivery and so is subject to certain taxes and international import duties.

When addressing your package it is recommended that you follow the same convention as when sending a parcel to China, so that the name of the country of destination is included on the last line of the address, in capital letters and ideally in the language of the dispatching country. It’s also often worth including contact details for the recipient so the delivery company can contact them directly in the event of any problems tracking down the address for your cheap delivery to Taiwan.

You also need to be aware that regulations regarding parcel delivery to Taiwan were updated during 2017, making them stricter than before. This means that when you are sending a parcel to Taiwan, you are required to complete paperwork giving details of the value of the items being sent and a clear description of the contents. This description must be detailed and cannot be vague so you can no longer just provide a generic description of the category. For example, simply describing the parcel as ‘shoes’, ‘clothes’ or ‘samples’ will not be accepted by Taiwan officials. Instead, you need to give greater details such as ‘one pair of brown lace up shoes size five’, or ‘two blue woollen jumpers and three white crew neck t-shirts’ or ‘five samples of patterned cotton fabric, 10 x 10 centimetres’. It will take slightly longer to fill in the paperwork but it’s worth doing, as if you do not comply with these regulations your parcel may not be delivered; instead, it will be rejected, confiscated or even just disposed of by customs officials.
Most delivery services have their own list of items that they will not carry internationally such as arms and ammunition, corrosive substances like acid or dyes, flammable liquids, pesticides and many more. There is also a list of items that are specifically banned from being sent to Taiwan, so it’s important that you check this to ensure your parcel will be permitted into the country. This includes counterfeit or fake money or even moulds for printing counterfeit money, items that infringe copyright or trademarks, narcotics and goods from mainland China. Your delivery company will also be able to advise on what you can and can’t send.
