So I bought some headphones from USA. Grado HF2's if anyone's into that. For a few days the tracking status said 'Into Foreign Customs' in Auckland, which worried me a little since I am in Christchurch and they were sent to Chrischurch.
Today, I got a letter from Customs telling me that I need to pay a $82.50 GST fee on them. What I want to know is, why? I have bought numerous other items from various places (USA, Hong Kong, Europe, etc) and never had this issue before. Also, I don't see why it had to go to Auckland. Do all international packages go through Auckland first?
