Import duty

Import duty Definition

An import duty is a tariff paid at a border or port of entry to the relevant government to allow a good to pass into that government's territory. In medieval and ancient times, such tariffs were even collected by local governments. Now this is very rare. Typically they are collected by national governments or, in a customs union, by the regional authority.
