How to send a package to Kazakhstan? Documents necessary for your shipment
To send a parcel from Switzerland to Kazakhstan, please attach a pro forma invoice (automatically generated when booking on Expedismart.ch). This invoice indicates to Kazakh customs the contents of your package. You should expect controls of your goods on the spot by the customs and therefore possibly a slightly longer delivery time than indicated. Do not hesitate to allow a little margin in terms of time if your parcel shipment to Kazakhstan is really urgent. If you are sending valuable goods, do not hesitate to subscribe to parcel insurance, the cost is 1% of the declared value of the goods. If your shipment is for a sale of goods, you must provide a commercial invoice (not a proforma invoice), which will also be filled out automatically when you book your shipment through Expedismart.ch. Compare and send a parcel from Switzerland to Kazakhstan at the best price on our website in just a few clicks. Choose carriers such as DHL, FedEx, UPS, Aramex, or TNT who will pick up your document or package at your home and deliver it door-to-door, against signature, to Kazakhstan.
