Let's see :)
Japan, J-List: 4 orders, 1 had fees and VAT
Japan, NLS: 12, 3
China, Hobbyheart: 1, 0
China, IlotExotique: 2, 0
Yes that's 19 imports, none of them seemed opened. The only hiccup: France wants it's share of VAT when the value is higher than ~150 â¬, this delays delivery and once they were too stupid to find the attached documents on the box and have had me send them the invoice. Again to know if they should ask me to pay VAT difference (lucky me, the value wasn't that high; but it seriously delayed the delivery; from there on I avoid EMS shipping).
I guess Spain, France and Germany count to the EU lands where overseas import isn't a struggle with the customs. Netherlands, Italia, Belgium, Finland, Austria and Poland should be cool. I guess all it takes is the country to handle large amounts of import, being rich enough for not greeding up with tax and fees, and being no paranoid like UK.
Go on, import yourself in the EU and fap with us :D
