Shipping to Nepal – Time, cost, custom duty in Nepal

Are you planning to ship to Nepal? Neighboring India in the south and China in the North, Nepal has now become an important country in the world for tourism having the great Himalayas and Mount Everest with other beautiful natural surroundings.

Shipping to Nepal is admittedly exciting but also has a few major shipping and moving factors to keep in mind while you relocate or even ship your belongings to South Asian Country Nepal. Shipping to Nepal from any country in the world is not as easy compared to other countries, as Nepal has multiple remote locations and extreme weather conditions it requires a huge logistics network for a successful delivery, which SFL Worldwide excels in.

Shipping to Nepal Cost

While you choose to send a parcel to Nepal, you also have to choose the mode of transport according to your requirements; you can choose to ship your belongings to Nepal by Air or by Ocean. Shipping to Nepal or sending a parcel to Nepal via air is considered to be pricier than shipping to Nepal via ocean. The expensive rates while shipping via air are justified by quick deliveries while shipping via ocean is comparatively cheaper with a longer transit time.

How much time does it take to ship to Nepal?

Depending on your choice of transport you can calculate the estimated time of shipping to Nepal, the other factor that determines the transit time of your shipment is the country you are shipping from. If you are looking for quick deliveries you can always opt-in for express shipping to Nepal via air. On the other side if you have all the time to send your shipment to Nepal you can go with ocean freight, which in return saves you a lot of money.

How to send goods to Nepal?

If you are planning to send goods to Nepal, the appropriate option would be choosing cargo shipping to Nepal. In Cargo shipping, you can economically send goods to Nepal via ocean freight in a personal or shared container. If you are relocating to Nepal with a lot of goods, we advise opting in for an FCL, which means Full Container Load. Choosing an FCL is appropriate for shipping furniture to Nepal or even shipping huge boxes to Nepal. In an FCL you will not share the container with any other customers shipping to the same country and also get the benefits of a quicker delivery compared to an LCL. While, if you have only a few boxes to be shipped to Nepal, opting in for LCL would be a wise decision as you will save a huge amount by sharing containers with other customers for your shipment to Nepal.
