China has recently decided to add a new law for its parcel deliveries. After many victims have had fatal injuries from letter bombs, it is now required for the sender to give personal identification and contact details. All envelopes and parcels will now be x-rayed upon entry to the country. Furthermore parcel recipients will now also be required to show identification before they can collect the parcel. This will prevent any confusion upon parcel delivery.
How does this affect my parcels to China?
We strongly recommend that you double check any packages to China. It is now more important than ever to ensure that your parcels do not have any restricted or prohibited items. For information on restricted items
you can find out more on our website. It is also important that the parcel recipient fully understands the new regulations and requirements before shipping a parcel. The courier services that we use are fully aware of the new regulations in place and it will not cause any disruptions.

Sending parcels to China has become increasingly popular as it is estimated that total e-commerce transaction volume increased by 59.4% this year. This is a massive increase and it is in large part due to the amount of imports and exports that are sent to China every year. Here at Worldwide Parcel Services we are proud to handle many packages to China every week and we are able to offer discounts for customers that send 4 or more parcels.
