Here are some examples of prices to send a parcel to Madagascar. We have many options, so for a personalised quote please enter the weight of your item into the quote box below.
The Republic of Madagascar is reportedly the world's oldest islands and the source of much of the world's finest chocolate. Although many nations have borders with the Indian Ocean such as South Africa, Oman and Indonesia, very few are completely contained within it. Those that do include Comoros, Maldives, Mauritius, Seychelles and Sri Lanka.
The island nation almost went bankrupt in 1982 and had its IMF financial support suspended in 1991 due to political turmoil, however, thankfully this was reinstated in 2004 with half of their debt being written off. Although progress is being made a significant proportion still lives below the national poverty line of just $1 per day. They do, however, apparently have half of the world's supply of sapphires.
When it comes to sending parcels to Madagascar it would take a respectable four to five days to reach the island on our Â£28.29 service via Parcel Monkey Air Express or three to four days on our Â£59.95 service via DHL - for a light parcel. If your parcel is heavier you can expect to pay Â£56.69 and Â£199.95 respectively for a 10kg parcel. We do have other restrictions in terms of length, width, height etc., but those prices should give you an approximation of what you could expect.
When looking at how easy it is to send parcels into the country it should be worth noting that the Malagasy government does earn significant revenues from taxes and duties on imports. We also expect that you will need a Bordereau de Suivi des Cargaisons, commercial invoice, bill of landing or air way bill, a packing list, import declaration and certificate of origin.
There are restrictions on the importation of tobacco leaf and vanilla as well as the usual narcotics, explosives, gemstones and precious metals.

Too many times money debited from my account for extra weight
Excellent service. Very competitive price, no issues with collection or delivery to a small town in northern Madagascar - package arrived quickly and safely. Would recommend and have used many times.
a very easy and reasonable way to send parcels abroad
we have not received the parcel yet
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
