Customs Duties, Taxes, and Permits?
Almost all shipments of merchandise are subject to import taxes. Many types of merchandise are subject to Customs Duty as well. Some countries require an "import license" or permit for all imported goods. Your Post Office should be able to tell you what fees and charges will be applicable when items arrive your delivery address. Any fee associated with customs, duties, tariff, or brokerage, if demanded by any carrier, during the course of import entry into the destination country is to be paid by the recipient of goods but not the shipper.
