The short answer to that question is that it depends on the situation. But it’s not anything to worry about.
There’s a workaround that makes it possible to order from Dpd and have the package shipped to Sao Tome And Principe. And the shipping rate is inexpensive.
How to Deliver Items from the Dpd Online Store to Sao Tome And Principe
To ship internationally, Dpd requires you to have a physical address in the United States. It is there that you will be expected to receive your order.
The good news is that you do not need to live in the United States, or even have relatives or friends that do, for this process to work!
Your saviors are called Freight Forwarders. These are companies based in the USA which basically give you an address, just so that you can send your purchases there.
All you have to do is open up an account with a Freight Forwarder and you’ll never have to worry about shopping on US based online stores again.
MyUS is our personal favorite Freight Forwarder.
They combine a reliable and convenient service with a fair price. They do not charge additional taxes or unnecessary fees and have a relatively low rate.
We’ve used them to ship packages abroad for years now.
Hopefully, you can now see how it all works. When ordering from the Dpd store, or any other U.S.-only store for that matter, you simply get the packages shipped to the U.S. based address.
Your packages will then be shipped to the address that MyUS supplied you with.

They truly do take the hassle and worry out of the process of international shipping.
Once they receive the package, they will notify you to see if you would like them to ship it to you in Sao Tome And Principe, or if you would prefer to bundle a larger order. It can save you time and money in the long run!
MyUS gives you the ability to order from U.S.-based companies as if you were living overseas.
