The Customs officials will check for the paperwork to be filled out as appropriate to your specific items that you are trying to ship as well make sure the contents follow the guidelines put forth in their prohibited and restricted items lists which you can find on line. The Customs officials there also reserve the right to assess a duty on your goods if they are valued at a certain point or if they are of a certain nature, such as a high quantity of alcohol, as an example. For a guess on how much of a duty fee you will be assessed for your particular shipment, you can go on line to a duty calculator or ask your shipping company for help.
