CIGAR SALES POLICIES & RESTRICTIONS

 

You must be 21 years or older to view or purchase any cigar displayed in this website.

To ensure cigar quality, we do not stock cigars in our office and only purchases direct from the manufacturer when an order is made in our webstore. We do not have a physical store.

All cigars are shipped from Manila, Philippines.
 

TAX/DUTY

Our prices do not include possible charges for duties and taxes of the destination country.

KabayanCentral.com will settle all Philippine-side tax/duty and permits but you will be responsible for the payment of any duties and taxes that may be applied by your country's customs bureau.

 

Although most countries allow cigar importation for personal consumption, we strongly recommend checking first with your Customs bureau (or its website) for the latest cigar import duties.

 

HEALTH WARNINGS

Philippine cigar packaging contains the mandatory health warnings and pictures. However, the health warnings are in English and Filipino language. 

We recommend that you confirm with your country's Customs Bureau if this is acceptable. Some countries require warnings to be in their native language which means your cigars will not be released to you even if you are willing to pay for the tax/duty.


 

SHIPPING METHOD

To greatly reduce the chances of mail pilferage or loss, we strongly recommend that you choose Express Mail (EMS) for the delivery method.

Courier companies such as FedEx, DHL and TNT do not accept cigars or any tobacco products for international deliveries.

REGISTERED MAIL WEIGHT LIMITATION

Shipping option via REGISTERED AIR MAIL is available but this is limited to orders with a maximum weight of 1.5kg (52.9oz) per parcel. ​

 

If you choose the registered mail delivery option, we will have to make sure first that your order is in compliance with this restriction. The reason is any parcel weighing over 1.5kg will automatically be upgraded to Express Mail delivery by the postal service with the corresponding higher rate.

REFUND

Absolutely NO REFUNDS for cigars confiscated/returned due to none payment of duties , non-compliance of non-English health warnings or any other reason specified by the destination country. 

 

NO REFUND also for LOST PARCELS if you choose REGISTERED MAIL delivery option. From our experience, registered mail delivery is not as dependable as it sounds. Express Mail (EMS) is a lot more efficient delivery method.

SHIPPING DESTINATION

Currently, we send cigars to the following countries: Australia, Canada, China, Guam, Hong Kong, Japan, Macau, New Zealand,  Philippines, South Korea, Switzerland, Taiwan, UK, and  USA.

If you know your country allows cigar importation thru mail, please email us about it and we will add your country to the list above.
