Since the covid pandemic international postage and customs controls have become much slower. Please be aware that delivery may take much longer than expected and you may be required to fill in additional paperwork for your local customs agency.




I hope the customs process to be simple and uneventful. Please contact me if you experience any problems, so that I can continue to gather information and make adjustments where possible.

 


Please contact me if your prosthesis is currently being held at customs and you need help or additional information from me.



Note:  Some countries do not allow the import of these prostheses or charge extremely high fees.Others request Paperwork that I cannot provide. Some destinations loose too many packages (especially since the Covid pandemic). Please contact me to ask if I can send to the country you are in.
