International Customs and Excise Duties.
Before shipping anything overseas, it is strongly advisable that you check the customs duties, laws, and requirements for your chosen destination. Find out what your responsibility is before your goods are shipped. Forewarned is forearmed, as you will have charges to pay for goods entering the country. Every country varies, and different laws will be applicable. When shipping overseas you will be required to pay charges to have your goods cleared through customs, you will also have to pay for DTHC (Destination Terminal Handling Charge), unloading (devanning), warfage, duties and taxes (if you are a returning resident, then duties and taxes may not be applicable).
