The trick we use is to unpack the stuff completely, throwing away all boxes so it looks like it is a 'used' item. I do the same going into Germany from Singapore. If you bring in more than one with packaging intact, then you may run into some trouble with the GST. If only one is being brought in for personal use, it is usually okay. Got friends who got their I-pad and Kindles. For food, it's okay. They don't care. Friends and myself will usually bring meat and chocolates from Australia. Wines will need to be declared if you bring in more than 2. Which we do, paying the tax and GST is still better than the super high prices we pay for lousy wine in Singapore.

Yes. first of all they will charge you tax for the product depending on how much it is and what it is. Then there will be an over sees shipping tax. Some places wont have a weight tax but rather a box tax. An iPod touch right now for tax altogether might cost around 70-80 $ including s&h
