Posting Parcels and Documents to Austria

With a high standard of living and a rich cultural heritage, Austria is on many of European travellers wish list and home to many lucky ex-pats who enjoy a very affluent standard of living. With major world players such as OPEC basing their headquarters in Vienna, Austria is considered one of the best places to live and work in.

This is a country who gave us Mozart, Beethoven and Strauss and the founder of psychoanalysis Freud.

Should we mention Hitler?

Magnificent Vienna on the Danube with its Imperial Palaces inspires young and old. Salzburg is such an elegant city.

Who could forget The Sound of Music and the amazing scenery of the Austrian Alps?

What do people ship to Austria?

We send a lot of parcels to Austria but just recently sent a parcel of love full of survival essentials from his Mum to an ERASMUS Scottish student studying at one of the best universities in Europe in Vienna.

So whether sending documents for business, or parcels to a loved one our reliable and great-value money saving services will ensure your item is couriered quickly and cheaply and fully tracked for peace of mind.

As Austria is within the EU there are not any major customs restrictions so most products can be posted to Austria without any forms to fill in.
