International Orders:

Posting systems for international orders are once again functioning. There are, however, delays happening currently, probably due to Covid 19 protocols & fewer flights, and many orders are taking 7-10 weeks to arrive. We thank you for your patience.

Please also take note of your countries import requirements on the Home page.

NB - If you choose to ignore import requirements for your country, we will not reimburse you for orders that are not delivered successfully

We hope you and your families are safe and healthy where ever you are in the world.
