Default Importing Product from outside US to Amazon FBA

Hello,
Do anyone have any idea of importing products to US.
I want my supplier from UAE or Pakistan to ship my product directly to USA FBA Fulfillment Center.
My product is stickers they are usually 6" x 6" in size.
I want to ship 100 pieces of it. Total value of it would be around $50 and Shipping Box weight would be 1 Kg.
It comes in document category. I talked to Amazon FBA they told me that

Custom clearance will only be needed when the inventory is directly sended outside from USA to FBA, you may also use any address of your relatives in US, so your manufacturer will be able to ship your units.

So, what do you say that I had to clear customs ? What will be their charges ? Their requirements?
I don't want to do shipping my self.
Thank you.

IMO, I always have my products shipped directly to me, then I ship to FBA.

Just so I can double check the quality and throw out any bad ones. Or what if your package gets damaged during shipment and your products still go into FBA and you get lots of angry customers etc etc etc

Might just be my OCD who knows

But, I am sending this Shipment in an envelope as a document. DHL told me that there is nothing to be worry about customs as its value is less than $50. Means your shipment will pass customs without any problems. So, what do you think in this regard ?

Sounds like DHL is on top of this - advice-wise

Thank you all.
At the end you need to clear customs and duties for this.

You can not Import products from Pakistan that is for sure because of many issues the most Important Problem is that Pakistan is not Supported by Amazon or Ebay or even Walmart. As once I tried to import Hand made things and some another stuff because of which Pakistan is famous but unfortunately it was not possible.
You can import products from UAE or India easily.
By the way I will not recommend you to import products from outside USA try to manufacture it in our own country.

You are right..... It is not possible.
Importing from China will be good.
