CUSTOMS & DUTY
If you are buying a dress from another country please check with your local customs office. Tell them the price you are paying and ask what, if any, duty you may be liable for when the dress arrives. As the receiver of the goods, you are the one who will be asked to pay the duty, not the sender.
Different countries have different limits on the value of packages received from overseas.
Marking the package as a gift, or used clothing makes no difference.
Duty is calculated on the declared value of the item regardless of what it is.
