Although it is hard to believe, yes, there are countries for which Amazon does not exist. In this post we are going to tell you in which countries does Amazon ships to and therefore we can stay calm, and in which ones we can start to get nervous. In this carticle you will find some important information if you are interested in learning how to sell in amazon.

Countries where Amazon sells with its own store

First, let’s take a look at the websites that Amazon owns, corresponding to these countries, where we have our own Amazon store. The latest additions to this list were Belgium (2022), Sweden, Poland and Egypt (2021):

    • Germany: amazon.de
    • Australia: amazon.com.au
    • Belgium: amazon.com.be
    • Brazil: amazon.com.br
    • Canada: amazon.ca
    • China: amazon.cn
    • Egypt: amazon.eg
    • Arab Emirates: amazon.ae
    • Spain: amazon.es
    • United States: amazon.com
    • France: amazon.fr
    • The Netherlands: amazon.nl
    • India: amazon.in
    • Italy: amazon.it
    • Japan: amazon.jp
    • Mexico: amazon.com.mx
    • Poland: Amazon.pl
    • United Kingdom: amazon.co.uk
    • Sweden: Amazon.se
    • Singapur: amazon.sg
    • Turkey: amazon.com.tr

All these websites represent a great opportunity if we own a business. They allow us to expand to areas that would possibly be unthinkable otherwise. Although it must be taken into account that, currently in China and India, they do not admit sellers who do not reside in those countries.

What countries does Amazon NOT ship products to

Yes, although it may seem difficult, now that we are used to buying from this eCommerce giant, there are 7 countries to which Amazon does not ship. These countries have sanctions and/or embargoes by the U.S. Government, economic blockades imposed for several years for reasons ranging from, violating and breaching human rights, to being accused of promoting terrorism. These countries are:

  • North Korea
  • Cuba
  • Iran
  • Irak
  • Syria
  • North Sudan
  • South Sudan

Amazon does not ship to these countries, but they are not the only countries with which we could have problems. As we mentioned before, there are countries for which we can find restrictions on shipments of products from Amazon.es: Some products may be restricted in the following countries: Algeria, Bangladesh, Bahrain, Bosnia Herzegovina, Brunei, Bhutan, China, Egypt, India, Israel, Japan, Jordan, Kuwait, Libya, Malaysia, Morocco, Myanmar (Burma), Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Tunisia, Turkey, and United Arab Emirates.

In addition, DVD and Blu-ray discs can only be played on devices with the same regional code, and additional information can be found in the DVD and Blu-ray regional code section. Products containing hazardous substances may be restricted to ground shipments only.

Books shipped to the United States and Canada may be subject to a limit of one copy per book.
