Customs Information and Country Restrictions
Import duty and taxes are due when importing goods into Brazil and the import duty and taxes due are calculated on the sum of the value of the imported goods, the cost of freight, and the cost of insurance. Imports are also subject to a state sales tax (ICMS), a type of federal tax (PIS PASEP and COFINS), excise tax (IPI) on certain goods.

There is no minimum threshold in Brazil for online imports. Imports with a value up to US$50 sent by post, where the sender and the recipient are private individuals, are exempt from duty and tax.
