Tips for Going Through Customs
1. Keep Your Packing List. The first step in determining which items to declare is to make a list of all the things you brought with you from home. This packing list will not only help you organize your suitcase at the beginning of your trip, it will assist you when the time to fill out your customs declaration form arrives.
2. Know the Rules. Take time to read the rules online before your trip begins so that you know which items you cannot bring back with you. You can view the United States rules HERE.
3. Register Valuable Items. You can register high-value items, such as cameras, laptop computers and watches, with your country's customs agency before you travel. Taking this step will help provide Customs and Border Protection officers with proof of ownership of these items.
4. Save Receipts. Bring an envelope or zip-top plastic bag with you for receipt storage. Any time you buy something during your travels, tuck the receipt into your envelope or bag. When the time comes for you to fill out your customs declaration form, you'll have a handy record of your purchases.
5. Avoid Farms and Agricultural Stations While Traveling. Customs officers are charged with preventing agricultural pests from entering the country. Any traveler who has visited a farm or agricultural station may be subject to additional screening, disinfection of shoes and other precautionary measures. If possible, skip the goat farm tour and save yourself some trouble.
6. Leave Food Items Behind. Trying new foods is part of the fun of international travel. However, many countries restrict imports of fruits, vegetables and meat products. Eat the foods you bought on your trip before you head to the airport.
7. Pack Carefully for Your Return Trip. If possible, pack all the items you purchased on your trip in just one or two places. This will make it easy for you to find them if the customs officer asks to see them. Of course, you should never place valuable items in your checked baggage. Carry them with you at all times.
8. Declare Everything. You must declare all items you are bringing back with you from your travels, whether you bought them for yourself, as gifts or for resale. This includes purchases in duty-free and tax-free shops. You must also declare any items you were given or bequeathed. Alterations, such as tailoring, or repairs to items you took with you on your trip must also be declared. Customs officers may confiscate items you brought back with you but did not declare, and you may be subject to a fine if you deliberately attempt to bring restricted items into your home country. You will have to pay customs duty and taxes on items you bring back with you if their total value exceeds your customs allowance.
