VAT reclaim for personal items shipping from non-EU country

Jump to last reply

I am a student in Italy for my master degree (having my study VISA for 2 years). Before the trip, I sent a few boxes of personal belongings to Italy from my own country (Hong Kong), all items inside the box do not include any tobacco, wines, in fact, those are just clothes and some computer parts. However, when I received the parcels today, I was asked to pay the VAT and Duty fee for each box. I was totally shocked, cause this amount of fee already take a 3-4 months -daily expenses of my study. Those are just personal items, and is definitely not for selling in Italy, I wonder if I could make a reclaim for the VAT due to my situation, if so, how could I do that in Italy? Please kindly advise. Thanks!
