New Requirements for Shipments to South Korea (PCCC)


It has recently been announced that a Personal Customs Clearance Code (PCCC) will be required on any packages shipped to South Korea. The PCCC is a 12 digit code starting with P (e.g. P123123123123) and is issued by the Korean Customs Service.


Korean citizens can create a PCCC at the following website:

Non-Korean citizens are permitted to use their passport number in order to facilitate the clearance of their goods.


In order to ensure that your package reaches you quickly and safely without any issues at Customs clearance, please include your PCCC as the second line of your street address.
