You will always hold the responsibility of checking if the contents of your shipment are taxable and if the laws of the recipients’ country allow the import of said contents.
Pakke.dk does not check these circumstances with you and is not capable of advising you in this matter. In this case we advise you to seek information with the authority of the country you are shipping to, like for example embassies and customs authorities.
It is prohibited to ship the following items and dangerous freight to all countries available with Paket.se. Dangerous freight is a common term covering drugs or objects that can cause damage upon humans, environment or property if they are not handled correct during transportation.
Shipments that get caught in customs due to prohibited contents or dangerous freight will not be credited the customer and Pakke.dk reserves the right to charge the customer of punishment fees no matter the treatment of destruction or cleaning of prohibited contents.
