Tips for How to Send a Package from Vietnam

1. Not have your parcel wrapped before taking it to the post office. Postal staff are supposed to unpack your package to check whether it contains prohibition items such as animal fur and military-technical equipment. So it is advisable for you to have a look at the list of prohibition items, conditionally accepted items, items with export licenses.

2. Take notice of the size of items, which are allowed to be sent abroad. For example, with the Vietnam post, the size standard of parcel posts up to 30kg is measured by the length and the greatest perimeter. And these numbers must be no more than 3 meters.

3. Plan to send your parcels to whom and which address if you might still be traveling when your packages are going to arrive.
