However, it MIGHT happen that you get lucky and you don't have to pay anything. Happened to me before!^^
In a way you have always paid for that though, even when you ordered a kit from a store within the US. Because these stores had to pay the customs fee as well so they re-include that in the final price in their store.
Not necessarily, costum rules are not everywhere the same. franchise limits also differ per country. EU custom franchise rules do not apply in the US and visa versa, besides there are numurous treaties between countries when it comes to import and export.
