Getting You Through Customs and Immigration
Once your household leaves the shores of the US and heads to a foreign country, everything you ship will be subject to scrutiny by the government customs officials of the county you are moving to. Most countries have long lists of items you are not permitted to bring or ship with you. Anything found in your household goods at the port of entry by customs agents that is not permitted can result in long delays for your household goods and possible fines or more from the government.
To help with this, we keep current lists of customs regulations for each country we ship to. From this, we can provide you with an accurate list of items you must leave behind. Along with this and your relocation expert, we work to make sure you have nothing in your shipment that is not permitted so that going through customs is plain sailing.
For example, you should not ship or carry with you any types of vegetables, fruits, or plants as most countries have very strict regulations covering bring organic matter in with you or trying to take it out with you when you leave. If you are caught doing so, you could be subject to fines, seizure and more. A simple rule of thumb, if you aren’t sure about an item, don’t ship it.
Along with this, you need to make copies of everyone’s passports. Place a set in your household goods tucked away out of sight, another set in your checked luggage, and keep your originals with you. In the event, something should happen to your passports (theft, loss, etc.) you may be able to use the copies until you are able to visit the US Embassy and order replacements.
