    depending on where you are importing from and importing into, you need to look into the duties for that particular country.

    for example, importing from Shuttllecock from China to USA would incur a 4% duty.

    You seem to be from South Africa based on your profile.
    I checked Internet and seems there is no Import Duty on shuttles. Just Sales tax maybe.
    Any case, you can call below and double confirm locally.

    I am in the process of importing some Li-Ning shuttlecocks from China. The shuttles, like most sport equipment, don't have import duty. You will pay VAT on them.
    Small orders can be brought by plane, but for anything more than a couple of tubes shipping by sea will be your best option.

    Have you already imported any shuttles?
