Bringing items into China for a friend - what to expect at customs?
Based on the answers to What to expect at Chinese customs when bringing in items for friends who live there?, it looks like I will have to pay customs duties on a couple of items that I am taking with me to China.
Having never had to deal with this before, I'm not certain what to expect:
- What is the Chinese duty tax rate for US citizens?
- Can I pay the duty tax in US Dollars or with a credit card, or will I need to acquire Renminbi before I arrive?
