We recommend that you contact your local customs office for more information as customs policies and practices vary widely from country to country. The fee is the responsibility of the Customs of the destination country. Any rate is not applied or reverts to Care to Beauty. We cannot know in advance whether this process will happen or not so we cannot warn you when you place an order. If this happens, you will be contacted to pay the taxes. If you refuse to do so, your order will return to us.
