Postal Packages From The UK Being Inspected By Customs
#1
Over the years we have received many low value small packets from UK eBay sellers via Correos.  Recently we have had two opened by customs and then sealed up with Agencia Tributatria Aduanas tape and forwarded to us.

Has anyone else had their post inspected recently?

Yes it happens occasionally, one of my offspring sends something they list the contents on the envelope or package
Do not confuse my personality with my attitude my personality is down to me, but my attitude depends on you!

Haven't had it happen for quite a while but I've got 2 packages overdue at the moment, both from eBay ……………..
Did they charge you to send the package on from Aduanas like they used to? That used to really annoy me, pay Aduanas a few cents in import tax and then more than the cost of the goods to be able to receive them, despite the original postage being paid to your home address.

There was no duty, postage or admin fees payable.

Hi everyone
This has happened to me my mum sent me my Holland and Barrett slippery elm vitamins which I use to protect my tummy they never delivered to me here in Fuerteventura they sent them back to the uk and in it a note said the item was not allowed! Even though ive had them posted on to me before so wasted postage costs to me. Now I have two parcels very overdue one with coffee in and the other toothpaste? What is going on with Fuerteventura postal system?

Could it be what is in the parcels which is causing them to be searched?  
Something shows up on an x-ray or it just a random stop

Welcome to the forum Lorena - thanks for joining in the discussion.

I was very interested in your comments - 1 of the packages that I am waiting for contains vitamins as well! I've also received similar here without problems in the past.

Please keep us up to date with your packages.

One of my long awaited parcels arrived today, via Correos. It was not the vitamins and it did not appear to have been intercepted by Customs. No clue as to why it took so long.

A couple of years ago I ordered some vitamin supplements from the UK.  The cost of them was about £20. However, the tax I had to pay on delivery was €26!!! 
I mentioned it to my supplier just as a precaution so they could advise other potential customers what to expect if delivered to FUE.  They were kind enough to refund the €26 - it was very unexpected but very welcome of course.
