Duty Tax

Duty Tax - 02/17/15 04:08 PM

Wanting to bring some gifts for the caretakers during our vacation, but unsure how to figure how high the duty tax will be. I hear it commented on, so know it must be significant. Anyone?

Thanks!

Varies on an item by item basis so depends on the gift. The minimum is 25% of value once all tax is totted up. If bringing in through International Airport and in luggage and not vastly expensive or on banned item list don't declare it and more often than not if they search see and ask and you tell truth they'll let you through. Contrary to popular belief they aren't looking to scalp everyone esp through International Airport.
