When importing samples / exhibition goods into China are they deemed to be exempt from import duty?
In the case of samples / exhibition goods that are being temporarily imported into China, the consignee / consignor of the goods may apply to the relevant mainland customs authority for temporary admission confirmation and seek permission to defer the payment of any required import duties. In such an instance, all the goods in question must be re-exported within six months. If the goods are not re-exported within the specified timeframe, they must undergo the standard import declaration and tax payment formalities. Should any extension to the temporary import status be required, the licence holder or consignee / consignor must submit an extension application, outlining the particular circumstances, to the relevant customs authority.
