Sending a N64 to the US / import customs

Post by andzlay » Fri Jan 20, 2017 12:23 pm

Hi,

has anyone experiences with sending consoles for modding from overseas (exactly: EU, Germany) to the US?
I ordered an ultrahdmi modding from badassconsoles, and I'd like to avoid, that he would need to pay custom fees, when I send my N64 to him.
I read something about "temporary import under bond" for "Articles to be repaired, altered or processed" in the US. I'll prepare the package on the weekend and I know there will be a CN22 form to fill out for the international shipping. I just feel a bit unsure about this and want to minimize trouble. It would totally suck if I had to pay import taxes to the US and then to Germany again :roll:
I'll appreciate any input, thanks!

As far as I'm aware, which frankly doesn't mean anything, no one in the history of the US has received import taxes from USPS for a video game.
Other carriers could be different.
