Duty in china

The most discerning traveler will have all asked the question at the time of customs clearance. Choose the file “nothing to declare” or not?

You must also be in possession of bills when your purchase is above 430 euros. The rule also applies to gifts. Otherwise, you must pay taxes.

Regarding cash, the exemption granted by “community of interest” is 10 000 euros. This means that it is not 10 000 euros per person …

The declared goods are subject to customs duties (0% on a laptop, 4.5% for shows, 14% for TV …) and VAT (19.6%).
