Strange... My post-app says I have to pay $25 clearance costs for the import of goods into the European Union... Thats new to me. How do customs know what's in my mail? I hope they don't know what's in there.

Anyone had this before? Mail is from Indian vendor

Please do not describe your packaging if you want to continue to get them.  Always assume LE is going to be reading your post.

maybe its being delivered by a 3rd party carrier that picked up the package that is probably outsourced by your regular mail company to deliver foreign mail?

Well, my vendor says it's very strange. He has never had that.

 

But, it's the law. Because I import 'goods' into the European Union, the postall office is obliged to declare my mail with customs and I have to pay taxes for importing into the EU. 

 

I can challenge this. However, then they have to check the goods and estimate it's value. I don't think that's a good idea.

 

I will just pay the 20 Euro's. Mai will arrive this afternoon

Taxes = BTW?

Well, it's called 'Inklaringskosten' and its a sum you have to pay to the postal office because of the handling of the mail and the administrative expenses that are made, e.g. costs for customs, BTW-taxes and import levy. 

 

It's very normal, because that's EU-law. However, I have NEVER had this before. Indeed. Customs think I ordered something that is of some value and to import it I have to pay for it. Main question is: did they open it or didn't they.... :) Will see, my mail will arrive within two hours now.

To be honest: I've never heard about that before.

In Switzerland they sometimes charge the WUST (BTW), but for handling

was originally paid at point of despatch.

 

Or...is that the new way to make money out of the illegal imports instead of sending them back?

My post was not directed at you but at Duvel right above my post.  I didn't want to quote his post and then have it posted "again".  I should have quoted and just X out the descriptive part.  Duvel, we don't mention where vendors originate from and especially don't describe packaging!!!  That is my vendor too and I want to continue to receive.
