- Customs offices in some countries require the importer of record to provide a particular form of identification before releasing a shipment. You may be required to provide an identification number such as a Unique Identification Number, CPF, or Tax ID.
- Countries that require an identification number include: Brazil, Chile, China, Ecuador, India, Israel, South Africa, South Korea, and Turkey.
So basically its almost the same thing paying to local shops ( custom duty charges ) / if customer needs to pay and handle product once it reaches the destination country .
I would surly consider if newegg ask me to pay some additional charges when it reaches the destination country and they will handle all the form and custom stuff and deliver to my location.
