How and When can i Export my carry-on Baggage?

You will need to export your carry-on baggage if you are traveling abroad on business or on vacation and need to bring goods that do not fit in your carry-on baggage, especially if you are flying. Similarly, if you want to travel by car and your belongings do not fit in your car, you can arrange to export your carry-on baggage.

It is also possible that you want to go by ship and once at your destination you cannot handle everything you would like to take with you.

In addition, you may want to take something of great volume, value, or fragility, such as a work of art, which will require exporting it as carry-on baggage, but with the required security measures, optimal and sufficient packing conditions, and compliance with any applicable laws.

There are many cases in which you will not be able to take all of your carry-on baggage, which will require you to export it.

In all these cases, you should consider exporting items that could be considered carry-on baggage, such as work tools, sporting instruments and equipment, some food products, such as ham, or very bulky suitcases or many suitcases.


What you should understand before Exporting carry-on Baggage

While exporting carry-on hand baggage to an EU country is straightforward because the free movement of people and goods applies, if you need to send it to a third country, you will need to determine whether the country has any limitations on the entry of carry-on baggage.

On the other hand, you should be aware that, depending on the customs rules governing the entry of goods, you may have to pay some kind of tax in the destination country.

You can find out more about what you can take with you when traveling to another country on this EU website , as air travel imposes limits on carry-on and checked baggage.

Also, the Customs Department of the Spanish Tax Agency has extensive information on all the customs processes and formalities that must be carried out to travel. You can consult them here.


Your hand luggage is in the Hands of Professionals

For these reasons, it is advisable that if you must export personal goods that are included in your hand luggage, you should entrust them to specialized companies that know all the procedures and limitations.
