Austria has gained a reputation for offering a high standard of living, making it hugely popular, both with expats and travellers who are keen to soak up the rich cultural history Austria has to offer. From the alpines to Vienna and beyond, there's something for everyone in Austria, and thanks to its high GDP, it's ranked just outside the top 20 richest countries in the world.
Home to over 8.6 million people, the Central European country has become one of Europe's biggest traders. With big businesses working out of Austria, the country is ranked first by the World Bank when it comes to trading across borders. With an overall ease of doing business rank within the top 20, it's no surprise that there's a constant demand to send packages to Austria. That constant demand means people are looking for ways to safely and quickly send a parcel, whether they're sending a package to family and friends, or they're looking to send several packages to an Austrian based business.

Do I need to deal with customs when sending from the UK to Austria?
Austria has been a member of the EU since 1995, and with the UK currently being a fellow member, there is no need to deal with customs when sending a package to Austria. In June 2016 however, the UK voted to leave the European Union, which could mean customs will become an issue when sending packages to Austria in the future. If anything changes, we'll be sure to let you know at ParcelBroker.

What items can I send to Austria?
Austria have a similar policy in place to the EU when it comes to what items you're allowed to send into the country. They do however, prohibit some specific items such as antlers, horns and hooves. Additionally you're not allowed to send any insects into Austria, whether they're for biomedical research or not.
