    I guess it depends on where you're importing them to. In Australia, I had no problems in importing Lumias from China. In the U.K. I have had to pay a customs tax on some of my imports. I recently had some of my own stuff from Australia shipped over, and the tax came to far more than what the actual items were worth. Royal Mail advised me to have my things marked at a lower value on the customs declaration to avoid it from happening again in the future.

    Just be careful because many of the phones offered through Chinese vendors are Android phones with a Windows Phone or iOS skin on top to make them look legit. If you are buying from a reputable vendor you'll probably be ok. Another suggestion is to check YouTube for video reviews of the phones you are looking at because occasionally folks will do video reviews of the phones they bought from a certain vendor and demonstrate if they are legit or clones running a different OS.
