French Shipping Customs Procedures
When sending a package to France, customs forms are required for international shipments. The specific forms that are required depend on the contents of the package and their value.
For example, if you are sending a package containing commercial goods, you will need to fill out a customs invoice or a Commercial Invoice. This document details the contents of your shipment, including the value of each item, and is used by customs officials to assess any duties or taxes that may be due.
If you are sending a package containing personal items or gifts, you will need to fill out a CN23 customs form. This form provides similar information as the commercial invoice, but is used for non-commercial shipments.
In addition to the customs forms, you may also need to include other documentation such as a certificate of origin or a packing list, depending on the contents of the package and the requirements of French customs.
It's important to check with your shipping carrier for specific requirements and instructions on filling out these forms, as incomplete or inaccurate forms can delay the delivery of your package.
