Hi all,

I wondered if anyone has ordered a C860 (or similar) direct from Japan, and if so what import duties they got charged?

I'm intending ordering a C860 from

Didn't pay any import duty. Maybe that was due to a modest valuation on the package.

I didn't have to ask for that either.


Hi Matt,

PDAs are actually duty-free in Europe. But you will have
to pay the local VAT for the product price + shipping.

We know, that some japanese vendors are sending units
marked as "gift package" or with a low value.

But please have in mind that :
- this is illegal
- and if the package is lost, you'll only get the value from
the insurance. If the value is $10, you'll get $10 !
