Hi Karthik Thanks for the informative post. I want to buy a microcurrent facial device for personal use from US or UK (available in both places). It is within INR 15,000. Will this be considered as electronics import or can it simply come as a gift?
My sister-in-law (who lives in US) sent Lego EV3 kit as a gift to my kids in India. Customs in India is charging a huge amount in terms of import duties. Are the import duties applicable on these kinds of toys? If yes, what is the percentage?
My relatives are bringing a new laptop for me from the USA to India. They also have a laptop of their own. would bringing the new laptop be of any problem? will import duties be charged?
One phone is fine Vishwajit, I haven’t seen or heard of any case where they have levied duty one single piece. However I’d advice you to unbox it, just to be safe. As long as you’re using the phone for personal use, it is ok.
I am planning to take Packed I phone 6s Plus with me to Mumbai, would there be any custom duty if they see its packed or i have to unbox it and then i should take it as i am using this phone?
Yeah, one iPhone should not be a problem. He should be able to send it to India through any of the companies mentioned above. Is he sending the iPhone 7 to India?
Hi kartik, i wanted to ask if my relative buy an iphone in US, is it possible to send it to India without and customs or extra charges other than courier charges??
Yes you can. There might be a small fees involved though. I’ve used my US credit card to buy from Amazon, Flipkart and it was not different from buying online in US, except that there was a surcharge (which they are upfront about).
hi karthik, can i use my citibank credit card issued in USA in amazon india and shop? am trying to send gift to my friend marriage. is this possible?
