Shipping items to Botswana
DE MINIMUS INFORMATION
Botswana does not have a de minimus value
De minimus is the value below which certain countries do not assess taxes and duties on shipments.
De minimis value significantly impacts eCommerce. This is because B2C orders are typically a much lower value than B2B, and a larger percentage of your shipments will clear duty and tax-free to specific countries. Shipments below the de minimis value will clear faster and provide an opportunity to get your shipments faster.
Please be aware that consolidating shipments will affect the value of your shipment and therefore the de minimus value as well.
Take note that many items can be received duty-free if the goods meet the rules of origin under free trade agreements.
