Importing in to Hong Kong is relatively easy compared to many other countries that aren’t free ports and more goods are taxed or dutiable. However, products in to Hong Kong can still be classified as restricted or prohibited. Although we are always working hard to ensure your purchases reach you in good time and safely, there are some items that cannot be shipped due to Hong Kong Customs Import Regulations.

We have selected some items below which we believe will be most relevant to you for your online shopping experience.

–       Alcohol

–       Tobacco

–       Medicines

–       Pharmaceutical products

–       Radio communication transmitting apparatus

–       Pesticides

–       Rice and food materials such as colouring matter and preservatives

–       Meat and animal products

–       Powdered formula

–       Smokeless tobacco products

You can also visit the Hong Kong Customs and Excise Department website for the full list of controlled imports:

We know it seems like quite a list, but we are here to help. If you are ever unsure of whether your item can be imported or if you own a local business entity and you believe you have the appropriate license, please drop us a mail and we will be more than happy to assist.

We will continue to monitor the Hong Kong trade regulations and update you as soon as you there are new additions or removals to the list of prohibited goods.

So, please watch this space and Happy Shopping!
