Sending Goods to Bahrain - Fees & taxes?

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

Planning to send a new iphone 4s 8GB to my new sister inlaw who is working in Bahrain and I was wondering if anyone from there or has family there has had expierence with the customs office. What they charge in duties and fees etc in your expierence. I have found it very hard to find information on this and I dont want her getting the package and being asked to pay some insane % tax or duty fee etc.

Thanks in advance everyone.
