Sending Royal Mail shipments to Crown Dependencies (Isle of Man, Channel Islands)

There are a few rules that Royal Mail require when creating shipments for orders going to any of the Channel Islands or Crown dependencies.

List of Crown dependency islands:

  • Isle of man
  • Jersey
  • Guernsey
  • Alderney
  • Sark
  • Herm

Do I need customs forms?

Yes for all of the above locations excluding Isle of man you will need standard Customs CN22 and CN23 forms.

What do I set for the shipping country?

Another specification is that the country is set to that of the island. So for example a parcel going to Jersey would need the country set to Jersey and not the UK.
