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 Ikea and have the package shipped to Iraq. And the shipping rate is inexpensive.
How to Deliver Items from the Ikea Online Store to Iraq
Wouldn’t it be so much easier if you just had a USA address that you could ship packages to? Then you could order from the USA Ikea online store until your heart’s content.
The great news is that there is an affordable way which doesn’t involve you buying a house!
United States companies called “freight forwarders” offer US addresses to foreign customers. The foreign customers then use these addresses for purposes of international shipping.
When you open an account with a freight forwarder, you receive a US-based address. You can then easily order from any US-based company by using your US address.
The Freight Forwarder which we would strongly recommend is called MyUS. They are reliable, affordable and unlike other Freight Forwarders, they do not charge extra taxes.
Since working with them, we have conveniently and inexpensively shipped many packages internationally.
Whether you buy products from Ikea or another U.S.-based company, MyUS lets you conveniently ship them to your new physical U.S.-based address.
Buy Your Product(S) From the Ikea Online Store
When you’re shopping online and choose to deliver to your allocated Freight Forwarder address, the delivery will be received by their team.
At this point, the Freight Forwarder will ship your package to your address in Iraq.
If you have ordered multiple items from multiple US online stores, MyUS will package all of your orders together and send as one.
So, there you have it. You can enjoy the luxury of shopping on the Ikea US online store, without having to actually live there.
