About Customs, Duties & Taxes

When ordering from Amazon.sa for shipment overseas, you're responsible for assuring the product can be lawfully imported to the destination. The recipient is the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the destination.

The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to import taxes, fees, and customs duties (hereafter, "Import Fees"), which are levied by the shipping destination's customs office. Import Fees are calculated in a variety of ways, according to the destination's customs regulations. Some components that may play a role in Import Fee calculation are:

  1. · Product category (HS code)
  2. · Product price
  3. · Shipping costs
  4. · Package weight
  5. · Customs clearance channel
  6. · Portions of the Import Fees themselves (such as import taxes based on customs duties amounts)

In some destinations, no Import Fees apply for shipments falling below a de minimize value. Contact your shipping destination's customs office for more information.

To simplify the customs clearance process for you on products shipped by Amazon, Amazon offers Import Fees estimation during checkout for certain eligible destinations. For more information, visit About Import Fees Deposit .
