How to send a parcel to Bulgaria? Required documents

When sending a parcel from Switzerland to Bulgaria, please include the proforma invoice that is automatically generated by Expedismart.ch, although you can also include your own during your online booking. When you send a new product that you have just purchased, the pro forma invoice is not the receipt you received from the shop. The pro forma invoice is used to inform customs of the exact contents of your package. If the goods have been purchased by the consignee or are resold after arrival in the country, the consignment must be accompanied by a commercial invoice, which can also be created automatically on Expedismart.ch. For valuable goods, we advise you to take out insurance. The cost of insurance is 1% of the value of the goods. You can take out the insurance directly when preparing the shipment with our partner company AXA Winterthur. Remember that if you do not take out transport insurance and your goods are damaged or lost, the Warsaw or Montreal Conventions will apply, and the refund will be around 23 francs per kilo.
