    Default $200 Import Limit

    I searched but couldn't find what I was looking.
    Can you help?

    I have read about a $200 exemption for packages coming into the country?

    Can one send 3 boxes, each less than $200, and still be exempt.. or will they add the values together?

    I am sending repair items for my car.... shocks, air filter, brakes
    They are all in separate boxes.
    Better to space the shipments, or can I just send off all 3 at the same time?

    Thanks

    as long as each individual box does not exceed 200.00 you will have no problem

    Thank you both...... always better to check first, rather than get overcharged at the aduana.

    One shipment on one day of the three boxes from one shipper to one consignee having a total invoice value (sum of the three boxes) US$ 200 or under is exempt.

    Thats a different answer than the other two but that was my question..... better to space the shipments than to ship all 3 the same day?

    Better safe than sorry

    Maybe sombody can clarify it?

    I shipped a faucet and taps once - about $400
    Paid about $150 in duty, etc.
    Expensive lesson

    From what I have heard, it is better to space the shipments... especially regarding computer-parts or car-parts...

    space the shipments.
    a few days each is fine as space.
    we do that for spare parts of the Xtreme Buggies, works fine.

    I don't think that you need to space the shipments. I import since many years lots of stuff and never had a problem. The only shipments i space are electronics and perfumes... ;-)
