The Kingdom of Bhutan is a small landlocked nation situated in the beautiful Himalayas and shares a border with China to the north and India to the south and has been rated as the happiest nation in Asia. Understandably, with a population of just 750,000 we do not see a regular flow of parcels to the Kingdom, although the parcel delivery infrastructure is perhaps more advanced than some other nations in the region.
Here are some examples of prices to send a parcel to Bhutan. We have many options, so for a personalised quote please enter the weight of your item into the quote box below.
In terms of economy, the most important industry to the country is that of electricity production through hydroelectric power. Also of importance are the mining and agricultural sectors, with agriculture and animal husbandry being of historic importance.
When it comes to sending a parcel there from the UK, we offer a variety of service from the Express DHL service which arrives as quickly as 4-5 days to the slower Asendia offering which is estimated by them to take 8-9 days.
A good recommendation is to use our own Air Express product, which takes just a day longer than DHL, and is still fully tracked but is actually the cheapest service we offer to Bhutan. You can arrange for the parcel to be collected from you, and delivered in just a few days from around only £32.
If you need to contact the Department of Finance and Customs you can do so via the Ministry of Finance in Tashichhodzong at PO Box 117, or via telephone on +975-2-322223 / 322514 / 322271 / 327763 / 322285.
Customs prohibitions aren't clear, this site does contain some details.
Heavy box collected with fragile item from Lowestoft and delivered in Scotland (near Aberdeen) a few days later. I had written This side up on the box, but this was not always obeyed, as there was slight damage to the item. However the price was very good for delivery and the customer had a spare part, so was not unhappy.
DPD did what they said they would and the tracking process confirmed that.
Everything worked as should. Great service!
Fast and easy to use
