What does an import duty mean?

Every country collects tax on imported and exported goods, and the customs authorities are collecting a customs duty tax on these goods. The amount one has to pay will depend on the type of goods that are entering or exiting a country, their value and other factors. The term import duty can be used interchangeably with customs duty, import tariff or import tax.
