When you have a cross-border trip and want to bring goods into a country, XtayPro recommends you to check the laws & customs regulations of the country you are entering. It determines which goods are allowed to be imported and when the customs duties (import tax, VAT and excise) have to be paid.
If the goods you bring exceed the duty-free limit, as a traveler, you are responsible for paying customs duties and fees. In this case, the responsible customs authority will need to determine the value of the products. This is why it is important to keep the receipts with you. Please also keep in mind that the quantity limit of your allowance includes your personal items.
Checking in advance laws & regulations, calculating all applicable customs duties and fees and informing other parties during transactions can protect you from unexpected costs or issues.
