Uganda is an East African nation that benefits from the richness of its natural resources - especially of the agricultural type. It shares borders with other countries abound with minerals and fertile land such as the Democratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania and Kenya and Rwanda but also the less naturally wealthy country of South Sudan.
The economy of Uganda reflects the nation's resources as 19% of Uganda's exports are various forms of coffee, 5.8% tobacco, and 2.9% green tea.
In terms of costs of sending parcels to Uganda, they are very similar to other countries in Africa as a 1kg parcel would cost in the region of £30 via TrakPak and the parcel would arrive in 10-11 days using this cost-effective international shipping. If you are shipping a heavy parcel to Uganda, say 10kg TrakPak will do this for just under £70.
TrakPak is a parcel post service which has global coverage and is very popular with those customers who require the cheapest courier services.
For those customers who require an Express Shipping service, our own brand Parcel Monkey Air Express will get your goods delivered to Uganda in just 3 days. Not only this it is a door to door, fully tracked courier service and you can share all the tracking details with the recipient so they can follow the parcel in transit.
Quicker still, is the DHL Express service. This is handled only by DHL door to door and again comes with full tracking to delivery and arrives in major Ugandan cities like the capital Kampala in 2-4 days. A 10kg parcel would cost in the region of £164 on this service, whilst our own Air Express service is more than half the price, so if you can accept a day longer in terms of transit time, the Parcel Monkey service is great value for money.
The Uganda Revenue Authority state that most imported items are taxable except computers, textbooks, medical equipment, medicine and mosquito nets.
Amongst the usual items such as pornography and counterfeit money, items such as matches made with white phosphorous, items with coats of arms with the aim of deceiving, various distilled beverages, etc.
Please also be sure to provide a local contact number so that the courier can make contact with the recipient and check our Customs Guidance.
My parcel to Uganda was picked up as promised - I was worried about the effect of strikes by postal workers in the UK. Neednt have worried - quick delivery and in time for Christmas - to a rural address well away from the big cities in the country. Perfect. Well done Parcel Monkey!
VERY EFFIECIENT AND PROMPT COLLECTION. CUSTOMSFORM A PAIN, NOT COURIERS FAULT
Amazing 3 day door to door UK to Uganda. Fantastic service
The parcel reached the country, but not the address. Im still waiting for the parcel to be delivered. Not sure why I am being asked to rate something which is yet to be completed.
My Box got safely to Uganda all ready for Christmas + a 1st Birthday for my youngest Grandson. Thank you.
As I send medications it was some effort to get it out of the custom but the communication was very good so that all could be managed on the end. Thank you
Great experience from start to finish.
My very eldest daughter gave birth to her third child on 2 January of this year, 2020 in Kampala, Uganda. Parcel Monkeys service made it possible for me to send 3 very large boxes of much needed newborn baby supplies to my Daughter including a Bottle Steriliser this was despite being told, when I sent my last box, that flights might not be going to Uganda. However, 4 days after sending the final consignment I received news that the box had indeed arrived and much fun was being had in unpacking all the supplies. Thank you Parcel Monkey for helping my Daughter and her newborn.
