Customs for parcel shipping to Guadeloupe (Fr.)

This means that you should follow the French rules and regulations for prohibited and restricted items when shipping there as well as follow any paperwork requirements that they may say they need. Getting a thorough understanding of their procedures before you ship is vital to having your parcels get through their Customs department without any incident or hold up. If you are missing paperwork, for instance, your parcel will be pulled from the processing line and held until you can straighten it out which is sometimes tricky when doing it from afar.
