I've not seen that before.  But we were also not subject to tariffs with China the last time I purchased directly from DJI.  It does say that it is just under review, so hopefully it will clear or release soon for you.

I received similar FedEx update. CLEARANCE DELAY ANCHORAGE, AK. First time I have seen this with DJI delivery. BTW: Usual carrier has been DHL. Hopeful that it will be released soon.

Here's an article from a couple months ago...https://thedronegirl.com/2019/09/15/trump-tariffs/
The cost should be accounted for in your purchase price.  I thought it was funny that it appears the cost  of their products increased world wide and not just in the US, though they blame the price increase in the US on tariffs specifically.  They are having to pay for your product coming into the US regardless.

Held under review? Most likely held under ransom. Is DJI practicing drone dumping on the U.S? If so, why is it still so expensive?

This is the first time I have been held at custom with DJI.

I believe this would also be the first time products from China were subject to tariffs that would cause this issue for you and DJI.  The tariffs were very recently put into place, I believe in September.  Prior to that, I don't think DJI released anything that was subject to any US trade sanctions.  Unfortunately, with the volume of product DJI releases at one time, it is bound to be checked for some people.

Yeah, I mean not sure everywhere else, but in Europe anything that costs more than 100 to 200 euros is quite possible they will stop in customs and make you pay, same goes when we import stuff from the states, if its small no but if its relatively expensive is easy to get stuck.

The only thing to do is use soemething like Fedex and make sure the parcel has all sort of data outside, clear bill of purchase etc.

In the other hand, customs authorities must be amazed... why on earth there is that huge amount of flying camera spies!! They maybe realiced they can make quite a bit in taxes if they catch them all lol

Hope you guys get it sorted asap.

Hi all, we apologize for the clearance delay, but please don't worry, this is normal and it usually takes 1-2 days for the clearance, it shall be updated soon, appreciate your patience.

Hey DJI, still stuck in Alaska and it's getting pretty cold. Why don't you pay your import tax and send my package on its way? It's getting pretty close to the acceptable limit of delivery time.
