UK residents can find information on Duty and VAT by visiting the Customs web site at www.hmce.gov.uk or by contacting their local Customs office. At the time of writing, goods of UK£18 or less in value (excluding postage, packing and other miscellaneous costs) and gifts from one private individual to another providing the value does not exceed UK£36, may not attract Duty and VAT.
New Zealand residents can find information on Duty, GST and import entry transaction fees by visiting the Customs web site at www.customs.govt.nz or by contacting their local Customs office. At the time of writing, most privately imported goods are subject to varying rates of Duty, GST and import entry transaction fees. However, Customs say no revenue collection will be made if the total amount owing on the goods imported is less than NZ$50. Gifts sent from persons abroad to persons resident in New Zealand are not automatically free of Customs duties, but gifts with a value of $NZ110 or less are stated to be allowed free entry
US residents can find information on Duty by visiting the US Customs And Border Protection web site at www.cbp.gov or by contacting their local Customs office. At the time of writing, most personal shipments worth up to US$200, and gift packages worth up to US$100, will pass duty free as long as the recipient does not receive multiple packages in a single day whose cumulative value is more than these amounts.
