Guys,

I had ordered a mobile phone from gearbest and for past 20 days the status was as below…

1/22/2018 4:31:37 PM India MUMBAI AIR Transfer from office of exchange (Inb) Air BANGALORE SUB FGN POST (RS989276255NL)

Today I called post office and I was told that the item is held by customs department. Gear-best has provided an invoice of 20$.

Actual mobile cost was USD$220 but I used some points and got it for $120… however invoice at gearbest site shows $20 only…. in this case should I contact Customs and get my item or should I wait for another week for the item to get cleared by them.. ? (any possibility)…

Tracking site still doesn’t say anything like “Held by customs or so” Kindly advise…

Thanks

Is EMI number mentioned on invoice,you will receive it but with penalty+ custom tax on original price,can be more than actual cost of mobile or maybe less,no one can tell. If it not having emi number mentioned it will be returned back.
