Taxes and Duties

We try to include the taxes and duties in the price on our website. However, for certain jurisdiction and locations, additional taxes and duties may be charged. We are not responsible for any such additional charges, and the customer has to directly pay such costs.

Depending where you live, your country’s customs office may impose a few additional charges on your order: import fees, declaration fees, import duties (tariffs) and/or taxes. In some countries, orders below a certain value may not be subject to duties. This is often known as De Minimis value, and is determined by your local customs office. For all online orders — including the purchase of gift cards — any additional fees required for customs clearance are the sole responsibility of the customer (that’s you). They will be charged upon arrival.

On rare occasions, customs agents may delay the delivery of packages at their discretion.

The powers that be also require us to state the value of your order (i.e. the price) directly on your package. We know what you’re thinking, and no, we cannot mark any package(s) as a “gift” to help you avoid paying extra fees. (Sorry.)

Sandhi-Store has no control over these charges. For more information on customs, duties, taxes and other import charges, please contact your local customs office.
