Electronic customs declaration required for mail containing goods destined for Korea to start on July 1
     Hongkong Post announced today (June 16) that, as required by Korea Post, senders must submit an electronic customs declaration for sending mail containing goods to Korea from July 1 onwards.

     The above requirement has already been put into effect for the posting of mail containing goods to Mainland China, the 27 member states of the European Union, the United Kingdom, the United States, Switzerland and Brazil. The customs information required is the same as that currently provided in the paper declaration forms, which includes:
  • sender's information;
  • addressee's information; and
  • particulars of contents.
      As reminded by Korea Post, all categories of mail containing goods that do not come with electronic customs information may not be processed and may be returned. Senders should provide a return address on the mail items. Items returned without a return address will be destroyed. Postage will not be refunded for return or disposal as a result of such circumstances.

     Hongkong Post has made available various channels, including online platforms (Easy PreCustoms, EC-Ship and My Speedpost), the Hongkong Post mobile app and the Easy PreCustoms kiosk or tablet in all post offices, for senders to submit an electronic customs declaration. For details, please refer to the Hongkong Post website (www.hongkongpost.hk/en/other/2020/ecustoms/index.html).
