1. Yes. Typically the customs charges are 5% of the invoice value

2. Yes, that's why they charge the additional 'service fee'. FYI PostaPlus or Shop and Ship charge KD 1 per clearance.

3. No. You can consider Postaplus (cheaper but takes longer to deliver) or Aramex (balanced between cost and delivery time) or Borderlinx (expensive but fastest delivery)

1. Yes.
2. MyUs doesn't deal with the customs, it's the courier of your choice (DHL/FEDEX) who will deal with the customs and charge you.
3. If they all can ship the phone, it's up to you to decide if you want it as soon as possible or as cheap as possible.
