Hey I ordered the new Macbook Pro from a US site and shipped it to my country through MyUS (a freight forwarder) by DHL The shipment arrived today but it's held by customs because its value exceeds 1,000$ and it needs extra clearance and custom fees. I want to self clear it from customs because I was told it's faster and cheaper. DHL's brokers take around 240$ to clear it. So my question is, usually around the world are such items hard to clear from customs and go through a lot of procedures and stuff? It's for personal use so not commercial at all. What do you think guys what issues may I face while clearing it from customs? Sure it depends on the country but I mean in general how do customs look at a non commercial imported laptop?
