Moving International From Or To Poland

The cost for moving internationally depends on where you are coming from, where you are going, and how you plan to get there. Most people ship to Poland via sea freight, but there are likely to be some overland parts of your trip as well. As you coordinate your travel, you will need to make sure you schedule these pieces so your items can transfer seamlessly from carrier to carrier.

With all these moving parts, it can be hard to figure out what it will cost. It’s easy to get an estimate for just the shipping container, but there are lots of hidden costs, too. From Sydney, Australia to Prague is $12,300 – $20,200, but what if there is a delay and your items sit in storage? Working with a shipper will give you a cost estimate you can count on.

Can I ship my household goods to Poland?

The customs process in Poland takes 20-27 days. Not the shipping, just the customs clearance. Keep this in mind as you prepare your items for shipping. You will not be able to use these items for more than a month after they leave your home. Fortunately, you are not required to be present as your items are cleared but will be called to collect these items once they have been approved by customs officials.

Required Documents:

  • Polish visa
  • Polish work permit
  • Proof of residence in Poland
  • Detailed packing list and inventory with serial numbers and estimates of value
  • Passport with at least six months until expiration
  • Bill of lading for your shipment
  • Power of Attorney written in Polish

In addition, you will need to obtain an EORI number (Economic Operators Registration and Identification) to meet EU customs requirement.

All shipments will be closely inspected for compliance and to ensure that no restricted items are packed among your personal goods. Any items that you have owned at least six months are able to be imported tax and duty-free.

Am I allowed to bring my personal vehicle to Poland?

importing vehicles have free entry as long as you have owned it at least six months and the vehicle complies European Technical Standards for safety and emissions.

Required Documents:

  • Driver’s License, or in the case of U.S. citizens, an International Driver’s License as well
  • International auto insurance policy
  • Proof of purchase
  • Clean title

European Technical Standards require that vehicles driven on EU roadways meet certain requirements. The most challenging requirements facing immigrants from North America are those related to steering, acceleration, and braking. All three of these major mechanical systems will need extensive modifications to meet these technical standards. Your vehicle will need to be altered by a mechanic who is qualified to make these extensive modifications, and then it will be subject to further inspection before it is allowed on the road.

Customer Reviews

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the great help with our move. We have so much stuff and I was really worried about being able to take the time off work to pack and get everything moved and unpacked. Three Movers saved the day! Your men showed up and had our house and garage packed fast and even put everything in the precise room at the new house. You saved me a great deal of time and saved my family a lot of money! Thanks so much!
