All declaration costs (customs duty) must be paid by our Kenyan office. To avoid unnecessary expanses, please follow the rules in this document.

Any spray cans (pressure bottles), food, guns, money, shower gel, body lotion, (liquids in general - they could leak due to bad manipulation with the parcel, and also African skin is different from ours and asks for different cosmetics), electronics, a watch, clothes, shoes – the office must pay high declaration fee (customsfuty) for them.

12. All Czech/Slovakian coordinators get regular feedback/information from Kenya about delivered letters and parcels and will inform you about the delivery.Please do not expect an answer/thank you for your letter from Kenya straight away.
