Internationally shipped packages may be subject to customs and import fees. The exact amount of these fees are determined by your local customs laws.
We recommend checking with your local customs office for more information on import taxes, customs duties, and handling fees.

iHerb doesn't collect any portion of these fees and does not determine any taxes, duties, tariffs, or other fees charged.
