Is shipping tobacco legal on your route? Great news, you can start packing! Follow our guidelines for best protection.
It might come naturally to you, but we would like to point out that any tobacco product you want to send – be it cigars, pipe tobacco, cigarillos, e-liquid or anything else – must be packed in its original packaging and sealed.
As already mentioned, shipping tobacco internationally (including products such as cigarettes, e-liquid etc.) is often not recommended by courier companies. This simply means that if anything goes wrong along the way, the courier service normally takes no responsibility for the delivery problems. Despite this fact, many shippers know very well that sending these items in smaller quantities after taking care of proper packaging is rarely a big issue. While some of them even sell tobacco products online and need a delivery service to dispatch their merchandise, many simply need the shipping to enjoy their favourite products wherever they are. If you need to send some tobacco through courier services, you are therefore definitely not alone.
