Among other things, alcoholic beverages, perfumes and any similar product with the alcohol content, can not be imported in Asia.

Shipments from Italy to Asia: prospects for the future
Asia is known for being the largest and, at the same time, the most populated continent in the world. It covers an area of over 44 million square kilometres and is home to over 4.5 billion people. ASEAN, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, an organization set up to promote the economic, social and cultural development of Southeast Asian countries, is one of the fastest growing economic areas in recent years. This opens new export opportunities for EU companies. As for Italy, while until recently only 7% of active companies had customers resident in China, the situation is rapidly changing. The inevitable consequence is an increase in deliveries to Asia.
What is the coding system
People planning to send suitcases or documents to friends living in China or e-shops planning to expand their customer base in Asia need to be aware of the customs regulations in place for both export and import in that country. The "coding system", the international standardized system used to classify products on the market, is essential in this respect. The aim of the system is to simplify the calculation of customs tariffs and the application of existing rules.
The most popular Italian products in the Far East
Italy is very popular in the Far East. The most popular products in the Far East are luxury goods and high-quality Italian products, as well as food, personal care products and furniture. Shipments of goods to China following the coronavirus pandemic have led to a significant increase in demand for certified organic food products, which are considered safe and very healthy. From olive oil and wine to bakery products and chocolate, Italian companies now need specialized companies to send parcels to Asia. Given the fragility of the goods transported, it is essential that they reach their destination in perfect condition and in complete safety. Europacco collaborates with several experienced and internationally renowned couriers such as DHL, TNT and FedEx. If you choose europacco, you can be sure that you will receive a quality service at affordable prices.
Import restrictions in Asia
People who urgently need to send a parcel to Asia often do not know which goods are prohibited for import. However, the list differs depending on the Asian country of destination. And any goods sent outside the European Union require an invoice. Regardless of the value of the goods, shipments must be accompanied by a proforma or commercial invoice in triplicate and the Free Export Declaration.
Goods prohibited or regulated in China
China includes in its list of non-importable goods antiquities, firearms, asbestos, ivory, perishable foodstuffs, gambling, jewelry, military equipment, pornographic materials, precious metals and stones, furs and skins. On the other hand, foodstuffs, alcoholic beverages, seed samples, cosmetics, medicines (with or without prescriptions), plants and sadistic material are regulated both for export and import. Every commercial shipment to China must be accompanied by an invoice in English.
Only non-commercial shipments or samples require a proforma invoice. However, it is up to the customs authorities to decide which duties apply. Deliveries to China with a value of less than $7 are not subject to tax.
Goods banned for import into India and Pakistan
Recent ISTAT statistics indicate that there are more than 165,000 people from India living in Italy, most of whom are used to sending goods and products to their Asian country of residence. The highest percentage is destined for well-known cities such as Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Pune and Kolkata. India is also banned from importing a range of goods, many of which coincide with those banned in China. The list includes firearms and ammunition, ivory, antiques, gambling, dangerous goods and pornography. The same goods are included in the list of goods banned for import into Pakistan. The Pakistani community in Italy consists of over 135,000 people and is likely to grow steadily soon. Shipments of goods and products to cities such as Islamabad, Multan and Karachi are quite frequent. Unlike China, where they are subject to special customs regulations, spirits cannot be imported into Pakistan.
How to protect your shipments
Shipments to Asia require careful packing, as packages are destined to travel a considerable number of kilometres. Thanks to the internationally renowned couriers we work with, Europacco ensures that your shipments reach their recipients as quickly as possible. And to get real-time information on the location of your parcels during transport, all you need to do is use the Europacco tracking service, which you can access from the "Shipment Search" section of the website. Despite the care taken by europacco, the sender is always obliged to provide solid and accurate packaging to ensure the perfect arrival of the goods at their destination.
Care must be taken in the choice of the box in which the goods are stored, and the packaging chosen to wrap each item. As far as packaging is concerned, special materials are considered necessary, such as, for example, bubble wrap, polystyrene, air cushions, cellulose, 3/6-wave cardboard and others. These solutions guarantee excellent protection against shocks, humidity and other external factors that could compromise the integrity of the shipped goods. When a box contains several items, the ideal option is to pack each item individually, using the packaging material indicated. Packaging should be even more precise if the intention is to ship fragile items. Europacco is ready to offer packing advice to anyone who intends to ship furniture, books, tires, bicycles and other "special" goods to Asia.
