Sad to say it, but my Oculus Rift issues continue. Here in New Zealand i've fortunately been chasing up my Rift for awhile now going in circles with AusPost, NZPost and New Zealand customs. Finally got a straight answer and unfortunately not only has my Rift been held for clearance by customs, it's now under investigation. -.-
It appears Oculus decided to circumvent customs through providing incorrect details with the import, labelled at $325 AUD compared to the $390 is should be listed at. I was fully prepared to pay the duties to customs, but i'm now locked into a circular battle trying to find a way to justify the price.
Not being able to fast track the process now, i'm here with no Rift and still a looming customs fee... and potentially further investigation.
Cybereality, if you come across this, please advise, you've been very good in getting us the information needed, but with all the delays and now this perceived circumvention of customs is just unbearably frustrating.
