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 H&M and have the package shipped to Cocos Islands. And the shipping rate is inexpensive.
How to Deliver Items from the H&M Online Store to Cocos Islands
First off, you’ll need a real U.S. address. There’s no two ways around it.
How are you supposed to get a real U.S. address if you don’t live in the USA? Ask a friend? What if you don’t know anybody in the United States?
Don’t worry, it’s a lot easier than it sounds!
Within the United States, there are several companies known as Freight Forwarders, whose intent is to help with international shipping.
These companies will give you an address in the United States to use for receiving packages.
With an account from a Freight Forwarder company and the U.S. based address, you can manage your international shipments.
From the given address, you can send and then ship your order from H&M, or any United States company.
With so many Freight Forwarders out there, it can be difficult to know where to start. The best that we have found is called MyUS.
They are trustworthy, won’t break the bank and they do not charge any additional taxes, so you won’t be caught out by extra fees. This isn’t always the case with every Freight Forwarder.
Since working with them, we have conveniently and inexpensively shipped many packages internationally.
Whether you buy products from H&M or another U.S.-based company, MyUS lets you conveniently ship them to your new physical U.S.-based address.

Once MyUS receives your package from H&M, they’ll ship it straight to Cocos Islands.
Another great benefit of MyUS is that they’ll actually consolidate multiple packages into one single shipment before sending it to Cocos Islands.
By using these Freight Forwarding services, you can order things from the U.S. as if you were a resident!
