Items shipped internationally may be subject to customs duties and sales or Value Added Tax (VAT) set by the destination country. These fees are not calculated prior to customs clearance in that country and are in addition to the price and shipping cost you are charged when checking out. (VAT is typically included in the price of an item. If the seller says it isn’t included, we recommend you contact the local customs agency to verify the import charges.) To complete your purchase, you are required to acknowledge that any customs duties and taxes that apply are your responsibility.
