We will advise you of this via your vPost Australia account and additional duties and taxes may be levied and payable once your parcel is received by Customs in Australia. Australian Customs will require additional documentation including a Shipper’s Export Declaration form.

Upon receipt of such notification, you have the option to either:

  2. If you wish to proceed, please fill in the customs tax form and submit together with the retailer’s invoice (in PDF format) to our mail box vpauspt@singpost.com

    As a general guide, Customs broker may charge up to AUD$999 for Customs clearance and carrier security fee on top of the Customs duty and GST.
