Due to the economic upheaval and civic unrest in Greece over the
past four years, parcel forwarding to this region has come under considerable
scrutiny and reform. Inflow and outflow of mail is still being maintained, but
certain restrictions and service dissolving has occurred. Most air-delivered
parcels will require at least a two day delivery window. Ground posts will
require at least a week once they are received on the European continent. As a
sustaining member of the European Union, Greece is afforded streamlined and
modern parcel delivery service incoming from all locations on the globe. The
restriction for packages at their originating points are the most difficult
screening processes in all parcels to Greece.
It is very common for shoppers in Greece, and those wanting to ship gifts to locations in Greece, to shop online stores that are based in the United States. The Greek Republic Ministry of Finance has outlined detailed instructions for direct shipping into the country. This information is readily available online. It is also possible that shipping can be routed through UK shipping companies because of the two nation's relationship.
Parcels purchased online through American stores, are inspected and sent to a British holding area. After further inspection and purchasing party verification, parcels are forwarded to Greece. Some delays can be expected, but the cost associated with shipping parcels to Greece are reasonable. Time frames for shipping are never concrete, but Grecian destinations are always possible with American-based consumer purchases.
