THINGS TO CONSIDER
You can send spices overseas by post or via courier but bear in mind that customs checks and restrictive regulations apply when shipping on certain routes, especially outside the EU. It is important that you check the shipping regulations of both countries before placing your order for shipping spices internationally via courier.
If you are shipping spices within the EU borders, your parcel will not need to go through customs before delivery. However, there are restrictions for importing spices from outside the EU because of food colourings and additives that spices may contain. In this case, you will need to check what kind of international shipping documents are required for importing and exporting spices to and from Europe. You usually do not need a health certificate to send spices via courier.
There are no particular restrictions for importing spices and herbs for personal use. However, some items may be subject to restrictions or duties. For example, there are heavy restrictions for shipping spices containing fruit, vegetable leaves or seeds to the United States. It is very important that you check what paperwork is needed for shipping to or from the USA.
