International Shipping
When will my order arrive?
  International orders are shipped by First Class International Mail or Global Priority Mail (depending on the weight & size of items ordered). Transit times vary greatly depending on a country's distance from the United States and the efficiency of customs and the post office in the receiving country. In general, you can expect your package to take at least 2 to 3 weeks to arrive after we ship it out, possibly significantly longer. Please plan accordingly.

Please note that due to extended transit times for international packages, the earliest that an international package will be considered lost by the US postal service and our insurance carrier is 45 days from the date of shipment. If your international shipment has not arrived after 45 days, please notify us as soon as possible after 45 days have passed. No lost package claims will be accepted more than 60 days after the package has shipped.
Will I have to pay duties/tariffs on this order?
  Many countries charge import taxes or customs duties on imported goods as part of the customs clearance process - in some countries, the import taxes & duties are very steep. Tax rates and laws vary greatly from country to country and The Magickal Cat cannot provide information about the duties that may be charged by your specific country. These taxes and fees are not included in the amount paid to The Magickal Cat. You are personally responsible for any duties, tariffs and fees imposed by your country for importing products.

The Magickal Cat will not refund or replace orders that are delayed, confiscated or destroyed by customs due to a customer's failure to pay import taxes & duties. If you are unsure about the rates & policies in your country, avoid unpleasant surprises by checking with the customs department in your country before you place an order.

Please do not ask us to mark an order as a gift or falsify values on your customs form to get out of paying taxes and duties. Requests to do this will not be honored. It is a crime under 13 U.S.C. 305 : US Code - Section 305 to falsify information on export documents and can result not only in loss of our ability to ship orders internationally, but also steep fines and jail time for us and possible fines and prosecution for the recipient as well.
Will my order make it through customs?
 
Due to vast differences in customs laws from country to country, The Magickal Cat cannot provide information about customs restrictions for any particular location. Many countries have restrictions against importing herbs, knives, precious metals, and other products. The customer is responsible for ensuring that all items ordered can be legally imported into his/her country.
 
The Magickal Cat will not refund or replace orders that are delayed, confiscated or destroyed by customs due to violations of import policies. If you are unsure about the customs policies in your country, avoid unpleasant surprises by checking with the customs department in your country before you place an order.
