I'm not sure if this has been talked about elsewhere but I am about to come out of my very poor pocket to mail some demos out and I wonder if there are any countries I should beware of when dealing with items that could be misconstrued as NS? How far do they take it Etc...

One would have to really try to paint my material in a nationalist's light but, I have heard enough stories about German customs to wonder.

My apologies if this post is in the wrong section or has previously been talked to death.

Germany was the only country I had to be careful with. The guy from Nordsturm always insisted that all covers and inserts were wrapped and never send any NS related flyers/ads.

eBay Germany took it to an entire new level when they started to decide which other countries of Europe couldn't buy NSBM. That was bullshit.

Never had any problems with mailing shirts/CD's to Germany. They may have not been NS but they sure as hell were anti-christian!
Mail always seems to get through to Germany pretty quick.

I have had problems with mail going to several countries (including my own) where mail is "lost" or somehow (supposedly) never delivered. Although these things happen from time to time.

The only country that has really been an issue has been Malaysia. I know there is a ton of die-hard metal heads there but I dont think Malaysia likes metal! Seems like every package I send there goes undelivered. I have been told by Malaysians that their customs system is fucked with this kind of stuff.



Also wondering... is anyone familiar with sending mail to Latvia? I have to send a 3lb box to Latvia this week. Do they have a decent postal system. Pretty much standard with the rest of Europe or worse? Just wondering if I need to shell out an extra $11 for Registered mail or should I just send it regular and keep my fingers crossed?

Yeah, I don't get why this is in the subject header? Someone's a bit confused?

Well, I guess he thinks of leftist liberalism that is opposed to "right wing extremism"... or whatever. Smile

Sending NS-related (and that includes the swastika, the SS-death head, various runes and symbols used by NS-groups before and after 1945) items to Germany won't cause YOU, the sender, any trouble whatsoever. However, the guy supposed to receive your package can be in hot water indeed, especially when you send more than a single copy of the same item.

To be on the safe side (for the sake of those Germans who shall receive your demo) I'd advise you to self-censor any blatant NS-symbolism that can easily be recognized by German customs control on a cursory inspection.

Pretty sure he meant liberal in the ultra sensitive pc douchebag hypocritical college student white guilt sense. These people champion freedom of speech only when it's to their advantage.

it's also always an option to send the cd's/tapes and the inserts separately in a letter. small letters with only paper stuff inside (so that the customs guys can x-ray it or feel it from the outside immediately) basically don't get controlled.

Malaysia likes "some" metal, but anything even close to resembling black metal is/was banned. Sent a box of CDs to a friend before starting a contract in KL (I made it before the CDs by over a month), and it definitely looked picked over by customs.

Indonesia and Malaysia have some strict laws on stuff like pornography, so if there is nudity, wrap it up or pull the cover.

yes liberal by definition would warrant absolute freedom but in the USA we had this thing called baby boomers and they grew up and morphed to hippy radicals, poisoned our institutes of learning with white guilt, male castration and marxist economics thus.. a revision of this concept..
"Liberal"
all apologies.. i thought this problem was worldwide. glad some of you picked up on my meaning.

This was posted in the trade section, but you weren't the one selling it.
