Country Conditions for Mailing — Czech Republic

 

Prohibitions (130)

 

Chain letter items.

Perishable infectious substances.

Perishable noninfectious substances.

Publications, drawings, photographs, records, sheets of music, etc., contrary to the State public order.

Radioactive materials.

Restrictions  

Coins; paper money; securities and other paper values of any kind; as well as savings-bank booklets; and unmanufactured gold, silver, and platinum may be imported only by authorization of the State Bank.

Gift shipments must be sent by private individuals. Those sent by commercial firms are not admitted.

Import permits are required for gift shipments exceeding three per year for one addressee, or for any shipment exceeding 3,000 Czech Republic crowns in value. Permits may be issued to addressees or withheld at the discretion of the customs authorities after the shipment arrives.

Medicines are admitted provided the addressee is in possession of an import permit granted by the Czech Republic health authorities.

Philatelic articles and stamps exchanged between member philatelists must not exceed 1,000 Czech Republic crowns in any calendar year. Gift packages containing philatelic articles are restricted to 3 per year and the shipment cannot exceed a total of 100 stamps or philatelic articles and 100 Czech Republic crowns in value.

Observations  

  1. Import licenses and quantity restrictions are applicable for many articles sent to the Czech Republic. Therefore, senders should ascertain from the addressee before mailing whether the contents are permitted and whether the necessary documents are held.
  2. Gift shipments for the personal use of the addressee or the addressee’s family do not require an import permit if the contents do not exceed 5,000 Czech Republic crowns. When the total exceeds 2,000 Czech Republic crowns, the addressee must provide a gift certificate authenticated by an authorized agent in that country. Czech Republic customs decides the value of the contents on the basis of internal prices of identical articles.
  3. Articles imported in postal items are exempt from customs duties if their total value does not exceed 300 Czech Republic crowns.
  4.
