Parcel delivery limitations to Gambia
It is best to check with the Gambian Custom's department for an up to date list of items that are prohibited and restricted before you ship your parcels off. The current list of prohibited items includes things like acids, radio active materials and corrosives. The restricted items list includes things like live animals. If you want to ship a live animal there, you may do so but only with prior permission and a special permit. If you do not obtain this permit before you ship, it is much harder to get it after the fact and you run the risk of your items being returned to you at your expense. In the worse case scenario, your parcels can even be seized by the government and you will be out your goods and the costs of shipping, not to mention the headache that all of this ordeal has caused you.
