Customs/Import Duties

  • International customers are considered importers and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which the orders are received. You may be subject to import duties and taxes, which may be levied once the package reaches your country. If that happens, additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you. We cannot predict or control what these charges may be, as they vary widely from country to country. Please contact your local customs office for further information. Also, we are required to show the accurate value of the items directly on the package.
  • Clearance Fee: In some countries, couriers may charge clearance fees independently from the customs duty for processing the packages through the customs. For more information on what these fees might be, please contact the post office of the country in which you are receiving your order.
  • Also, the clearance fee might be different for EMS and Air Mail parcels in some countries. In UK, for example, EMS parcels are handled by Parcel Force once they reach UK, while Air Mail parcels are handled by Royal Mail. Parcel Force charges a significant amount of “Parcel Force Clearance Fee” in addition to VAT tax, while Royal Mail charges much less. For this reason, many people prefer Air Mail to keep the cost as low as possible even though EMS is quicker and generally more reliable as online tracking is available.
