We ship all international packages through The United States Postal Service (USPS) Express Mail International. We can only ship to the physical address of a home or business. We can NOT ship to Post Office boxes (P.O. Box). We have found USPS to be quick, secure and cost effective. The US Postal Service generally approximates between 5 and 10 business days shipping time.

Customs
All international orders are subject to applicable customs duties and associated assessments and fees. These fees may include Import Duties, Value Added Taxes (VAT) and Customs Clearance Fees. These costs are entirely the responsibility of the purchaser. The shipping charge by backcountrygear.com does NOT include any of these fees. You will normally be charged the Customs fees by the company that delivers the package at the time of delivery.
