Can I send everything with MyMalls? Unfortunately, the answer is no. There are a few goods that are prohibited for air transport due to safety, health risks or even trade embargoes. On top of that, every carrier has their own policies for restricting items that may endanger the aircraft or passengers’ health or safety. Therefore, MyMalls has put together a breakdown of prohibited and limited items for shipment.

Please keep in mind that restrictions are constantly changing, nevertheless, Team MyMalls will keep updating this list as we receive notifications from our carrier partner. Do not hesitate to contact MyMalls Customer Support if you have any questions. In the meantime, we strongly advise our customers to review this list carefully before shopping.
