Previously a customs broker was required to clear out your parcels from the customs if the total amount was greater than Rs10,000. This gonna change now with what was announced in the budget 2013.

This article should help you a lot for your online purchases.
A lot of people still have unanswered questions about ebay.
Hope this additional post might help them.
I finally came up with this post since I have been asked practically the same questions for the last few days! Most of the people landed on my D5000 blog post in which I describe my first experience with eBay.
So, this post will go mainly to Mauritians wishing to purchase something on ebay…
