Will I pay custom fees for my purchase?

Custom fees, also known as import duties, are charges imposed by a country’s customs authority on goods that are imported from another country. These fees are typically assessed as a percentage of the total value of the imported goods, and they are designed to protect domestic industries and generate revenue for the government.

However, not all goods are subject to custom fees, and some countries have implemented custom-friendly policies for certain products. In the case of board games, many countries, including the United States, Canada, Australia, China, the United Kingdom, and countries within the European Union, have implemented custom-friendly policies for game purchases.

Under these policies, board games purchased from these territories are exempt from custom fees, as they are considered low-risk products that do not pose a threat to domestic industries. This means that consumers in these regions can enjoy the convenience of purchasing games from abroad without having to worry about additional charges at the border.

However, it’s important to note that custom fees can still be levied in other parts of the world, depending on each country’s specific legislation. This means that consumers outside of these territories may be subject to additional charges when buying games, and it’s always a good idea to check with your local customs authority before making any international purchases.
