Send a Parcel To Turkey Fast - DHL Courier Delivery

Although the country is self-sufficient with food, Turkey imports more than it exports. And with 83 million people populating the country, having DHL services in Turkey is very important.

DHL Express offers secure and direct international delivery, meaning your parcel is in safe hands until it reaches its destination in Istanbul or any other location in Turkey. So that you can monitor your parcels current progress, we offer our free tracking service by phone, text or online.

Sending a parcel to Turkey can take as little as 1-2 working days and with three ways to book, it has never been more convenient. You can choose to drop off your parcel at a DHL Service Point and use our simple box size pricing scheme, book online through DHLitNow and choose a collection time that suits you or you can call our friendly team to schedule a collection and delivery.

When shipping abroad, it is important to check what you can and can’t send to ensure your parcel is accepted for carriage. Countries can also have their own list of items they do not accept. For Turkey these include items such as gambling equipment, counterfeit goods and measuring equipment that doesn’t conform to Turkish standards. These items and other restricted items can be found on Turkey’s customs website.
