I'm curious about how well shipping in good under the housing allowance has gone for people
According to the law on pensionados, we can bring in up to $20K worth of household goods. My own take on this was that the shipping would have been more expensive than the goods I had, and I sold what I could and brought new or did smaller scale imports (one Medrano Express box, five checked on bags in two flights here).
Has anyone ever gotten the exemption and how did shipping go? Were there any problems with Aduana over whether some item was or wasn't a household item?
