Precautions for International Express Jewelry:

If you are sending hand-made jewelry, the value of the goods can be written as the cost of the raw materials.

Jewelry is a high-value cargo. You need to pay attention to the risks of damage and loss in international express mail. Any item has a certain risk of loss when international express delivery. International express companies have formulated corresponding compensation standards for this situation, but the standard only applies to general goods ——the claim is paid up to USD 100 in accordance with the declared value. It is recommended that the sender reduce the transportation risk by purchasing logistics insurance.

The tariff thresholds of Canada, Germany, Japan and other countries are relatively low, and the declared value of a jewelry may exceed the tariff threshold.

Due to the long shipping time for international mail, in order to prevent the jewelry from being damaged during the transportation process, it should be packaged and protected in advance. It is recommended to choose shock-absorbing and anti-drop materials.

It is recommended to keep the air waybill, which can be used not only to check logistics, but also as a basis for compensation.

When sending valuables, the local customs will check the shipment and audit the amount of tax according to the value, type, quantity and purpose of the item. If necessary, the local customs will contact the recipient through the courier company to submit the required documents and pay taxes to assist in customs clearance. After the customs clearance procedures are completed, the shipment will be released smoothly and the delivery process will continue.
