Question Duty Fee's?? Sending Gifts to Vietnam?

When sending gifts to Vietnam does anyone know how much they charge for Duty Fee's? Is it only on items that are over $100? I have sent things before but they were under $100 value. There was no Duty Fee. But I have something more valueble that I need to send for a B-Day gift. Does anyone have any information on the Duty Fee's?


Thanks

Hi,

I never sent things to vietnam so I can't help you. It's good that you are checking into it because I sent my sister (in australia) a used laptop which I got for over 3 years. She was charged $200 AUD for it at customs.

I lived in Hanoi for 3 years and any parcels that were sent to me or my family were charged with a duty that the post officer decided on the day and on any whim that they decreed. Of course nearer to Christmas the duty went up!!!!!

I would recommend that you don't put a value on the green sticker or just put as a gift 5 pounds value and hope that the duty officer thinks that it isnt' worth anything and it goes through..... I suppose it depends on how big the gift is.

Good luck!
