Import Taxes/Custom Duties

Orders dispatched to countries outside the US may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. Customs policies vary widely from country to country and you are advised to contact your local Customs and Excise office for further information. The recipient may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are, typically, charged once a shipment reaches the destination country, to include additional customs clearance charges. Armchair Books has no control over import taxes and/or custom duties and can neither predict what they may be, nor be liable for them if they are levied.

Please also note that customs clearance procedures can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.
