How to receive a Parcel in Nepal

If you have received a letter note or call as notification of parcel arrival instead of a parcel from postal office then you need to go to the general post office at Sundhara, Kathmandu.

You need to go to Sundhara office along with your personal id copy like a photocopy of citizenship or passport. There you can ask for parcel delivery room or Room no. 29. On the way to room you will be asked to fill a red colored form (shown below) available at reception.

Take the form to the letter to room no. 29 where you need to submit the form and search for the parcel. Either you will be sent to Room no. 31 or the parcel will be opened in front of you to verify the things to calculate VAT and Customs Tax. Once your, parcel items are noted you will be followed by calculation where each item will be valued guessing its price like a normal watch will be priced at Rs. 500, a bag as Rs. 500 but same being branded one will be valued more. Here you may need to show the price of the items or convince them to be of low price to lower you tax to be paid.

After calculation, you will need to get a sign of the Customs Officer who is available at Room no. 32. On getting the sign, return back to Room no. 31 and pay the tax calculated ahead. Here, I forgot to mention that you need to carry change else you may not get remainder money back 😉

You will be asked to go to reception and get all your paper stamped official. BTW here you will be asked for some bucks which is not mandatory.

Now, you are ready to get your long awaited parcel. So, go to room no. 29 and get your parcel on submitting your red form.
