Hi everyone,

Anyone in Canada already sent a gemstone to get a GIA report in the US?

My first time doing it, and I really appreciate it if someone more experienced could tell me how to proceed.

Should we pay any taxes to send the gem? And should we pay taxes to receive the gem back?

Thanks in advance!

I suggest calling the GIA Lab and asking them directly.

Hi Barbra,

Thanks for your reply.

Actually I contacted them first, and they answered me this:

"Because you are outside of the U.S., please contact FedEx, Brinks, or Malca-Amit for further shipping and insurance information. In regards to taxes, please refer to your country customs regulations."

Because of that, I was asking for some advice here.
