How to send a parcel to Tunisia? Essential documents
Once you have chosen the carrier that corresponds to your needs and validated the shipment from Switzerland to Tunisia, you have to prepare the shipment. Packing the goods carefully, print the shipping note (that we send to you upon reservation) and attach the proforma invoice generated by Expedismart.ch. When shipping goods that you have just purchased, the proforma invoice is not the purchase receipt that you receive in the shop. The proforma invoice serves to inform customs of the exact contents of your package, its value, and its country of origin. If the goods have been purchased by the recipient or are to be resold after arrival in the country, the shipment must be accompanied by a commercial invoice, which can also be created on Expedismart.ch. For valuable goods, it is advisable to take out insurance. Our insurance partner is AXA Winterthur, who charge 1% of the value of the goods for insurance.
Please keep a copy of the pro forma or commercial invoice!
