When it comes to delivery by a courier (such as EMS/UPS/DHL/FedEX),
If the item is less than $2,000 in value and is not subject to a quota or is not a restricted or prohibited item, a CBP official will usually prepare the paperwork for importing it, assess the proper duty, and release it for delivery.
Packages with declared value under $200 ($100 if being sent as a gift to someone other than the purchaser) will generally be cleared without any additional paperwork prepared by CBP. This means such parcel will be delivered to you by the courier directly without any additional import duties and taxes.
