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