Customs


Import Taxes

The Magnum Photos Shop is located in the United States. All items ordered from the Magnum Shop will ship from the United States.

Imports need to be declared when they arrive in the delivery country, and may incur import tax. Magnum Photos and the Magnum Photos Shop is not responsible for and can offer no specific advice on import fees, duty, Customs or taxes that you may be charged when your merchandise reaches you. We urge you to consult your local government import office with any questions.


New York Sales Tax

Magnum Photos only collects New York sales tax for purchases shipped to an address within New York State. Sales tax is not a VAT, and cannot be recovered by non-USA visitors when returning home.
