Customs Duty De Minimis Values by Country

Whenever goods move across international borders, customs from the importing country (the country receiving the goods) charge the importer customs duties on the goods. However, if the declared value of the goods (the dollar value of the goods that you present to customs) fall under the de minimis value, then no duties and taxes will be collected.

To make things more convenient, here is a list containing all the de minimis values compiled from public sources online.
