Country restrictions and gift allowances.

The following is a list of countries and the items that are banned or restricted in some way that would lead to huge delays in Customs or cause the shipment to be returned. Also listed is the gift allowance that each country has (or if they do not) that if the value of your items are lower than that amount, they shouldn't be subject to duties and taxes that your missionary or mission home would have to pay upon delivery. In some cases, like Brazil where there are no gift allowances, we heavily suggest you contact us so that we can process this shipment manually and ask that the duties and taxes be put on our DHL account (there is a $15 fee that DHL charges us for this service). This will allow for the shipment to be delivered with any duties or taxes owed to be put on our DHL account. Once we receive the invoice from DHL, we will notify you so that you can pay those with either the same credit card or a different one. Please refer to our FAQ page to better understand why there are duties and taxes.
