Will I have to pay customs duty and VAT?
For deliveries to countries outside the European Union, the recipient may be obliged to pay customs duty and VAT.
For deliveries to Ukraine, parcels with a total weight of up to 50 kg and a total declared value of up to EUR 150, delivered on the same day to a single recipient, are exempt from customs and tax charges. So, if your parcel does not exceed these parameters, there should be no need to pay customs duty and tax.
How to correctly declare package contents?
If you’re sending a package within the European Union, you need only describe the contents of the parcel in general terms.
For packages leaving the EU customs area, a more detailed declaration of the contents is required – a so-called customs declaration.
In the customs declaration, specify the category of the goods which best describes the contents of your package (e.g. sweets, clothes, cosmetics) and specify their value and weight. If you’re sending goods of various categories in one package, describe them under individual headings.
Is it possible to receive an invoice for a delivery?
An invoice is sent automatically together with the confirmation of shipment. If you’re sending goods outside the European Union and need a document confirming exit (message IE-599), before sending the parcel, please contact the Customer Service Department to determine the manner of shipment and the cost of organizing an export procedure. For standard services, we do not handle the confirmation of export (IE-599).
How long does it take to deliver a parcel from the time it is sent?
The time of delivery depends on the country of dispatch and the country of delivery. For deliveries within the European Union, the estimated time of delivery is 2–5 business days. Parcels sent to Ukraine are delivered to recipients within 8-14 business days, and delivery times are also dependent on the operations of the customs offices in Ukraine. The estimated time of delivery is presented on our website when selecting shipment and delivery options.
How to prepare a package for shipping?
Pack the goods in a cardboard box and tape it up, preferably all around, with wide adhesive tape. The packaging should protect the contents against external factors. To prevent the goods from moving around, fill up any empty spaces inside the box with crumpled paper, bubble wrap or some other filler.
What documents should I enclose with my parcel?
The electronic shipment form allows a label with the recipient’s address details and a declaration of contents to be generated online and enclosed with a parcel in the operating warehouse of Meest Polska. You don’t need to include any documents in your parcel. If required by the chosen shipping method – attach the shipping label you’ve received from Meest Post on your parcel.
What are the maximum dimensions and maximum weight of a parcel?

What will happen to a parcel if the recipient refuses to accept it?
If the recipient refuses to accept a parcel or pay customs duty and VAT (if calculated), the parcel will be returned to the sender at his expense, which is the equivalent of the basic delivery price. In addition, the sender will have to pay a service charge for procedures related to importing the parcel to the European Union, and all customs and tax dues arising on the import. The amount of the service charge varies depending on the reasons for returning a parcel, and the customs duty and taxes depend on the rates currently applicable in the country to which the goods are being imported. A list of all extra charges can be found in the Price List.
