Questions & Answers

Shopping

What are the duties or taxes on international catalog orders delivered in Korea?

Generally there is no duty/taxes imposed on purchases via internet shopping so long as the value is less than W150,000. 

Note that included in the calculation is the exchange rate at the time of entry (when Customs is receiving the package), the shipping costs, insurance if applicable - in other all related charges affect the 'value' of the order from a customs point of view.

If the order is shipped directly from the supplier these costs are likely to appear. Some expats have found it easier to have their purchase shipped to a friend or family member who then sends it on to Korea.

For more details regarding Korean Customs' regulations, visit their website. The mail delivery regs can be found under 'The Postal Parcels' and then under 'Scope of allowance for the parcel clearance'.
