How to send a parcel to Croatia? Required documents
When sending a parcel from Switzerland to Croatia, please attach the proforma invoice, which is automatically generated by Expedismart.ch. This document provides Croatia customs with all relevant information about the contents of the parcel. However, if the goods are resold after arrival in Croatia, a commercial invoice must be attached. You can create this yourself or via our website. For more valuable items, it is advisable to take out insurance.
