How do I send a parcel to Turkey? Customs regulations

In 1996 Turkey established a customs union, which now facilitates the import of goods from Europe. Although imports have been largely exempted from restriction, there are still some regulatory barriers. For example, for imports of electrical and automobile products the Ministry of Industry and Trade must give its agreement. Imports of pharmaceuticals and cosmetics also need permission. There are many other goods which require permission from the Turkish government. For this reason, check with local customs for more information. In addition, it is important to know that Turkey imposes very high customs duties on goods. We therefore recommend that you call the Turkish customs to find out the exact prices and certain conditions. To avoid problems when examining your parcel at the sorting centre, weigh and measure your parcel carefully before it is picked up by the carrier. In addition, for personal consignments, goods not intended for sale, do not forget to note "Personal effects" or "Free of charge" on the invoice.
