Where do Rifts ship from (country)?

I've just ordered a Rift S to be delivered to me in New Zealand. Are all headsets sent from the US, or do Oculus have distribution centers elsewhere (i.e. Australia)? Also, what are the chances of import duty? Pretty certain?

    As far as I know there isn't an Australian DC, but there are several locations that it could be sent from.
    The price you pay includes shipping and all taxes. It says so at the bottom of the Rift S page.......................

    Yeah, I was just more wondering how long it would take - if it comes all the way from the US, it may take a while! :(

    Shipping is quick, check your tracking when you get it. Lots of people here have been impressed by shipping times.

    Oh nice, good to know. 

    And yeah I saw that "all applicable taxes" when I was ordering and then got hit with this *after* I'd ordered:


    I'm not too salty though, as even with a $150NZD import fee it's still considerably cheaper than anything that can be bought locally.

    I believe Oculus ship to you from an Asian shipping partner but yes, Kiwi's do get a bum deal on imports  :|

    For those interested, yes Techy was right, it has shipped from Hong Kong.
