PLEASE NOTE that when selecting overseas deliveries you may be subject to an import tax/duty. Unfortunately we have no control over these costs and will depend upon the country importing the goods. Please contact your local customs office for more information on costs. You will be responsible for payment of any additional charges. If the additional charges are not paid, the items will be returned to us. At this stage we would refund the cost of the item/s but not the delivery charge.
