Shipping to Christmas Island
Christmas Island is a sparsely populated island in the Indian Ocean with under 2,000 residents. That being said, you can still ship there fairly easily, although you will not have that many carriers to choose from when trying to compare prices and pick a shipping company that is a good match for your needs.
Customs in Christmas Island
Even though the Territory of Christmas Island is not physically located all that close to Australia, it is under the Australian government's rule. That means that all the Customs procedures that you would need to follow when shipping to Australia applies when you have something to ship to Christmas Island. Their Customs department is not exactly set up as formally as their counterpart in Australia though, but looks can be deceiving. You should still adhere to all the guidelines put forth by the Australian government for prohibited and restricted items when shipping there. Also be prepared that every parcel that enters the country is subject to being inspected by this office to check compliance with their laws and regulations.
Shipping destinations in Christmas Island
The small population of the Territory of Christmas Island is all located in the Northern portion of the island. With this in mind, it should come as no surprise that all shipments will come in through that portion of the land mass, near Flying Fish Cove. From there, your packages may be delivered to their recipients or your recipient may have to go collect them from a centralize hub. Your shipping company will know which of these options applies to you and your goods specifically. No matter what their plan of action is, it is best to know ahead of time so that you can prepare your recipient for what they need to do once your parcels arrive.
