3 - Taxes & Duties 
International Deliveries 
Orders destined for countries outside of the EU are shipped on a DDU (delivery duty unpaid) basis. 
DDU (delivery duty unpaid) means you may be liable to pay local sales taxes and customs duties on arrival of our order. Where this is the case, you will need to pay these costs to release your order from customs before it is delivered to you. 
Please note that The French Pharmacy is unable to advise on the amount that this may be and cannot accept responsibility for these costs.

UK VAT will be charged on orders delivered to countries in the United Kingdom. Local VAT applies to orders shipped to other destinations within the EU. 
Australia is exempt from paying UK VAT.

We cannot guarantee delivery dates for overseas deliveries as they are subject to customs clearance in the destination country. Some items are restricted and cannot be sent abroad. Please feel free to place your order and we will let you know if there is any problem.

The price are subjected to the country destinations and prices updates from the couriers.
