Customs charges for shipping from abroad?

Hello, I would like to receive a box from the USA here in Jeddah. It's just kids clothes & toys for personal use. Does anyone have experience with this? I want to know if it is worth it or if customs charges would make it not worth shipping.

How much is the weight?
Usually custom charges don't apply on such items.


The rule is that the items should be of a "non commercial nature",  meaning very clearly that it must appear as if the items will be used in a household rather than for resale.

Obviously the quantity for personal use items should be limited to a few boxes. :)

customs is not going to charge anything for personal use.

Excellent! It's a medium sized box full of goodies; definitely personal use. Thanks!!
