Customs duty in Turkey.

I am thinking of buying an inflatable canoe from ebay, it is a UK company sending to Turkey.

The canoe is £90 plus postage.

Will there be any duty to pay on top when it arrives here?

Re: Customs duty in Turkey.

Not too long ago I had to go to Antalya Customs to pay Import Duty on an Embossing Machine that we had sent in from Britain.

The Customs Officer was very pleasant and during our conversation he did say that anything coming in from outside of Turkey was taxable if it had a value of more than €75.

It could be like anything else that's not too much over the limit. If the officer on duty takes the €75 as a guideline, rather than something set in stone, a pleasant smile could just get your canoe in without charge?

Good luck. Let us know how you get on.

Re: Customs duty in Turkey.

So you think there will be duty on it?

If I have to mess around going to customs offices and paying extra I will probably wait until Gittigidiyor has them. I was hoping that being non-electrical it would be exempt.

Re: Customs duty in Turkey.

I wouldn't bother with an electical canoe bickern....... electicity and water don't mix. Not only that, you also have the electric scooter syndrome...... 1500 mts of cable.

Re: Customs duty in Turkey.

The answer is Yes. anything below £50 is regarded as being of "Low Value" and therefore no customs. Anything over £50 is regarded as "High Value" and will go though Customs. If you do decide to buy it , make sure you leave a contact address or Phone number because either the customs or Courier company will want to contact you.

I recently purchased an item from the UK with a value of £95. I knew this would go through customs before I purchased it. The Courier company was UPS, they contacted me, and at their office I was told Duty was due. They printed off a form for me to pay it at a local bank, once paid they released the item. My duty for an item of £95, was 52 Lira (This was about 6 months ago)
