The Philippines is an island nation in Asia, whose closest neighbours are Vietnam and Malaysia. While the country is comprised of more than 7,000 individual islands, the majority of the 92 million residents live on only 11 of the largest and most hospitable islands. Even so, the Philippines is prone to frequent seismic activity, including volcanoes and earthquakes.
We offer a wide range of delivery services to the Philippines including the well-known delivery companies DPD and Parcelforce. DPD Air Classic is a service collected from your home or work address and can be booked from around £22. Parcelforce also offers international shipping to Manila, Quezon City and beyond for under £30 for a light package.
Parcel Monkey also offers TrakPak delivery services, which was designed for the eCommerce market but is also used by private individuals looking to send to friends or family, as well as for shipping goods sold online.
You can have a parcel collected in the UK and delivered in the Philippines in just 2-4 days via DHL Express. We also have our own brand Air Express service which is a premium service too with a transit time of 3-5 days. This is generally collected by Parcelforce and then delivered in the Philippines by DHL but for almost half the cost of DHL. This type of parcel post Express service is popular for businesses and time-sensitive deliveries.
When dealing with importing goods to the Philippines, the country makes two designation categories for goods entering the country; your shipment will be considered either an informal or formal entry. Informal entry covers commercial shipments under a certain value, as well as all personal shipments. Formal entry rules apply to commercial goods over the designated amount, as well as specific categories of products that are considered official regardless of their value.
The Philippines does restrict some types of goods from entering the country altogether. This can include items such as products that can assist in an illegal abortion, including printed material and medications. It is also not permitted to import dynamite, rebellious printed material, obscenity, lottery tickets, illicit drugs, used clothing and toy guns.
Import restrictions apply to many other categories of products and goods. Licensing, fees and special requirements may apply to pets, household plants, textiles, jewellery, prepared food, beverages, genetically modified crops and products, and pharmaceutical drugs. All plants and animals may be subject to quarantine and examination before they are released.
For more information, the Customs Twitter page is useful and provides links to further information.
It is always important to provide correct contact information for the recipient, as they may be contacted should there be any duties owed or any address problem.
In order to ensure that your package clears customs as quickly and conveniently as possible, always create a packing list that is as detailed as possible. All items included in the package should be declared, as well as the estimated value of the goods.
The Philippines is more lax about the requirements of shipments that are gifts, but the declaration is still necessary. In addition, any licensing or special circumstances that might apply to the item being sent should be completed as usual.
The Philippines has an especially strong relationship with the United States and is friendly with Britain. Until 1935, the Philippines was an American colony. The country became entirely independent in 1946, modelling its government after its mentor in the west.
While the Philippines used to support its citizens mainly on agricultural products, it is now considered to be an emerging industrial nation. Approximately one-third of the economic base remains in agricultural products, with the remaining portion resting in various service and manufacturing industries. The Philippines produces clothing, coconut oil, copper, fruit, petroleum and electronics. Besides the United States, the Philippine government trades frequently with China, Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, Thailand and Saudi Arabia.
Absolutely brilliant service. Cant fault them at all.
First time I have ever used found it easy and competitive prices made better choice excellent
Had a few issues , was sending a parcel abroad and the site has a customs form to fill in ,, it’s asks what in your parcel and 1) how many 2) what is it 3) value It’s then goes to the next item and add more on the same page I had one line saying 1) 10 2) Chocolate 3) £10 I presumed it wanted the total value but it was individual value So my 10 £1 chocolates on the Proforma document were listed as £100 I did not notice this and even though it got half way around the world with excellent transport it was held at customs because the parcel contents although only with £68 came in at £158 which was over the customs limit for tax free This resulted in a tax duty of £71 After sending a new document and many useless customer service representatives who could only copy and paste rather than try solve the issue finally someone called May M was in Work and sorted out my problem The parcel which included a Fisher Price Jumperoo for a little baby arrived with no tax duty May M should have a promotion for great customer service and the rest should get sacked I would use Parcel Monkey as delivery was quick and I will take more notice next time or hopefully they will change the page referred to in order that you can see the final value or correct your mistake without having to start all over again after listing all your items Thanks Steve
Competitive rate and excellent service!! Highly recommended company
Parcel took 7 calendar days from UK to Philippines including new years day, Friday to Friday. Tracking shows attempted delivery, but nothing was presented to the Apartment building front desk and no one called the local mobile number clearly displayed as part of the shipping address. Still waiting for delivery which could be Monday now. It would be good if you knew who the delivery agent would be when you post so you can contact them directly in situations like these
Amazed at parcel monkeys service. They arrived at the time they said to pick my parcel up. It took 4 days to get to the Philippines from stoke on trent England just like they said..
