I posted a couple of weeks ago about buying a Canon 5D MK III body either local or grey import, so this is a follow up on that topic.
I've never claimed something duty free before, and I wouldn't even have a clue where to start. I want to buy the Canon 5D, and the tax on that will be $340. Wondering if I should book a cheap flight somewhere to claim the GST…but then, do I buy the stock here before I go (where I have found a reputable seller for a great price), or am I subjected to buying it in the country I fly to (and then, being at the mercy of their prices)??
Like I said, I have absolutely NO CLUE how to do this.
I'm considering it as an option, since the item is so expensive.
Also, any cheap flights going around (apart from NZ? ?? Hehe :)
