The University use a company called DST for all international and overseas mailing. All items must be correctly packaged with careful consideration given to the prohibited items list (pdf). Please ensure you complete the Customs Declaration form (xlsx) making sure to sign it and attach it to every envelope, packet and parcel you would like sent. The post room will not accept any items for overseas mailing which do not have the correctly completed paperwork attached.
The UEL postal system is for UEL business only, and not for personal items. All items being sent for overseas mailing are subject to X-ray and images which do not match the customs declaration are flagged for opening. Any items identified as private items or containing items from the banned list will be retained in the post room and traced as far as possible back to their owner, which can take some time and may result in further action being taken.
