Shipping to Estonia
Shipping to Estonia can be a risky venture given their reputation for handling packages once inside their borders. Be sure you are aware of the risks and what you are allowed to ship there before sending.
Security concerns when shipping to Estonia
Estonia is notorious for having shipment go missing or having fraudulent things ordered. You should never send anything to Estonia without both a tracking number and insurance on your package in case it does fall victim to this type of happening. It doesn't really solve the problem of your package being swiped, but at least you can most likely get your money back if it happens.
Shipping destinations in Estonia
The port of Tallinn is the major port in Estonia where they receive ocean freight cargo holds for unloading. From there your shipment can be parceled out to its intended recipient fairly easily although not all locations within the country receive shipments. Some more rural areas will require you to go to a major city to pick up your items. You will want to check with your carrier to see where they deliver to and if they offer any extended delivery options as some shipping companies do and some do not.
Shipping limitations to Estonia
There are a few major things that are prohibited altogether to Estonia such as arms, money products (coins, bank or currency notes, traveler's checks, etc.), and radioactive materials for example. There is another list to take note of which is of restricted items that you will need special permission to ship into the country. This list is a bit longer and contains things like wireless transmitters or equipment to do so, medicines or pharmaceuticals, and flour or other cereal making ingredients. Since these lists are subject to change, you should always check with Estonia's Customs department or with your shipping company to make sure the contents are compliant with their regulations.
