Overview of de minimis value regimes open to express shipments world wide

Overview of de minimis value regimes open to express shipments world wide
De minimis refers to the minimum value of the goods below which no duties and taxes are being collected by the Customs. Certain countries have a separate threshold below which simplified declarations are accepted, e.g. in form of the transport manifest or other suitable form.

Hong Kong is a duty-free destination. No duties or taxes are collected.
India, there is effectively no duty and tax-free threshold, and most shipments will be subject to a range of duties and tax.
Russian Federation, duty and tax depend on an individual’s monthly import activity. The monthly allowance is currently a total value of 1,000 Euro (CIF value = value of goods + shipping) or a total weight of 31 kg. Duty and tax are payable at a combined rate of 30% of the value in excess of 1,000 Euro, although nothing is payable if the duty and tax are 2 Euro or less. For items exceeding a total of 31 kg, duty and tax are payable on the excess at a rate of 4 Euro per kg
Singapore, there is no duty payable on most products except alcohol, tobacco products, motor vehicles and petroleum products (but see list of Borderlinx Prohibited Items).
