UK Travellers



As of January 1st, 2017:

New UK Transfer of Residence procedures are now in place. In many instances, you will be required to obtain prior approval from HM Revenue & Customs if you wish to have your personal effects exempted from charges by the British authorities. This may require you to make online submissions to HM Revenue & Customs weeks prior to your departure. We recognise that this is a substantial departure from prior procedures.


Please contact us for further information as there are certain exemptions.


There are no longer Customs Clearance desk facilities at UK airports for the clearance of your Personal Effects.

It is highly recommended that you utilise the services of our UK-based clearing agent.

There are various service levels available ranging from clearing your shipment through customs all the way to delivery to your door in the UK.

Please contact Exportair for a quote.
