Once I ordered a protein powder online, upon arrival, Liban Post refused to hand it over to me before I get a clearance from the Ministry Of Health that this product complies with some safety regulation. Please double-check this as well.

I have ordered protein powder and other supplements online with no issues so far.  I haven't had to deal with the not so bright people at Libanpost however as each time it had come through DHL.  Regular milk and infant milk shouldn't be too much of an issue IMO.   Just have to hope that you get someone with common sense to clear it at customs.

I'm guessing it's their way of compensating for the raise of the dollar if you want to pay in LBP

It's good we can still buy stuff online, or else it would be the "cubanisation" of Lebanon, meaning we would have the same tech and cars for the 40 years to come while the whole world is evolving

It is just accelerating deterioration because of consumerism. Cubanization is inevitable.

YOU can buy still but most of the people can't, so if the 10%(maybe less) have shiny cars next year that doesn't mean anything, it doesn't make the situation any better, and those are becoming less and less as we speak

Did I say the situation is good?
All I have is 15$ per month with my bob card for internet, but some people can still import new stuff, it doesn't mean we are not in hell. We definitely need a revolution and put all our politicians in jail

Re: Shipping from abroad (share your experience)

Guys, I have around $800 in my account on Amazon and want to buy an iphone 12. How much will I have to pay in customs here in Lebanon? Is it worth it? Those $800 are from my lollars in the bank so much cheaper than buying one with fresh USD. But will customs be expensive?

Thanks a lot!

Re: Shipping from abroad (share your experience)

whatever you pay it will be at 1500LBP. Most likely 100-150$ at 1500LBP so like 8-10$ USD

Don't ship it with a courier, if you have someone coming from abroad tell him to bring it with him, you will later pay at libanpost about 16% of the phone's value

Re: Shipping from abroad (share your experience)

lebanese customs fees are negligeable... compared to the value of the.phone you're getting.
I used to despise shopandship, but as i said in my earlier post, for what they're offering, I can't complain

Be careful when using Shop&Ship for High-value items or big ones.

I wanted to get a shipment from UAE and after contacting Shop&Ship offices in Beirut and Dubai I couldn't do that because of the "Maximum Allowed Shipment Dimensions"

Here you can find all the details you need, and you can contact the Beirut office at this email: beirut@shopandship.com

https://www.shopandship.com/en/service- … 53569/HVHW

Also, S&S protect is not available in Lebanon even if your account is Flex. This is the reply from Shop&Ship:

"
Dear Valued client

Kindly note that SNS protect is not available in Lebanon and our liability will cover the amount of 100 $ by cheque in case of damage caused by Aramex since we don’t pack or repack orders

Regards

Re: Shipping from abroad (share your experience)

They get paid at 3900, why would they pay you in fresh dollars for your damaged items, if you don't want the risk then ship with DHL and pay with fresh dollars

Re: Shipping from abroad (share your experience)

It looks like dbrand can ship skin for 5$ delivery to Lebanon, anyone tried?
Does it take long to arrive to Lebanon? I guess at this price it will be with Libanpost

There is also xtremeskins that deliver to Lebanon but with ''international tracked shipping'' so most probably  something like Fedex for 10$ , I wonder if they take customs if they send the skin in an envelope?

I bought from dbrand multiple times, I tried priority shipping and it arrived in around 2 weeks with aramex.

There's customs and everything like a normal package.

So it's something like 21% of 15-20$ at 1500 lbp? Like 5000LL?

I remember they charged around 50,000, there's handling and stuff and they estimated it's value more than normal for some reason

Re: Shipping from abroad (share your experience)

My friend was looking for a camera lens so I advised him to get it from B&H since they can ship it directly to Lebanon.

The price of the lens is 719$

The cost of shipping 29$ with DHL. They ship it for free because there was a delay from their side. He used his friend's card and put the same address for the shipping and billing addresses so he went with a verification process.

It arrived after 4 days.

Clearance fees were 85$ at 3900LL. I asked DHL about that before ordering the lens. Each price range has different clearance fees.

The custom fees still at 1500LL

The total fees was 563000LL.

Here you can check the invoice:

Re: Shipping from abroad (share your experience)

Anyone have had any recent shipments recently?
It seems like the customs are holding a lot of packages now asking for 'formal clearance'. The frequency of this was much less before, now I have a lot of incoming packages that ended up with this state (requires extra payment for clearance).
