Letters to Denmark’s major trading partners in Europe are normally delivered to the recipient within 2-4 weekdays. If the contents require customs clearance for a country outside of the EU, you should expect the letter to take an extra weekday to reach its final destination.
You cannot send just anything in a letter to abroad and the rules may vary from country to country. You can obtain more details from your local post office. Exact information is available from the embassy or consulate of the country in question.
You should always check whether the item you are sending requires customs clearance in the country of destination and whether its importation is permitted. As sender you will be responsible for any consequences if the contents you have sent are not allowed. If sending a letter containing valuables, cash, precious metals, etc., you should send it as a registered item or as an insured item.
Please note, however, that not all countries accept such contents sent as either a registered item or an insured item. You are welcome to contact us for more details. Please call us +45 70 11 12 30.
If your letter contains only ordinary correspondence, you can send it without any accompanying documentation. If you want to send a letter with contents requiring customs clearance to a country outside of the EU, you must complete customs documents with a precise description of the contents and value of contents for customs purpose.
If the contents are worth less than DKK 2,379.00, you should complete a green customs label to be stuck on the letter. If the contents are worth more than DKK 2,379.00, you should complete one or more customs declarations instead. The top section of the green customs label must be stuck on the letter.
