Firearms into NICA

I have residency. Asked about this and was told can bring in two. Also told the best way is to ship in baggage and declare. When here the customs people will give me the paperwork to complete to get them in. Not anything to do before...just send in and eal with it.

Sounds really easy.

Import Duty on Household Goods

Assuming no pensionado status, any idea on the duty when importing various household goods. Say the load is valued at 10K? Is it a fixed percent. I realize the assessed value may be higher than what mine is so let's just say that is what they say it is worth.

Any info appreciated.
