Simplifying the International Moving and Customs Process
You can trust Beltmann Moving and Storage for international moving and custom expertise.
Customs can be confusing. Requirements vary greatly from one country to another and travelers are confused by the detailed restrictions and measurements. Beltmann simplifies the process. We stay up-to-date on all the regulations and can keep you informed of all the changes in customs requirements.
The first step of international moving is getting through immigration and Customs. International customs officials do not work for the airport or airlines, but rather the government of your destination country. They see thousands of people each day and spend only seconds deciding whether or not each passenger is entering the country illegally or trying to import illegal possessions. For this reason, it is important to follow the rules carefully in order to pass through the system smoothly.
Here are some tips to simplify your process through Customs and immigration:
- Keep a photocopy of your passport separate from your actual passport. Many officials will accept it should you misplace or lose the original.
- Do not attempt to bring flowers or fruit. Fruits are absolutely not allowed into or out of the many countries and will result in their seizure and a fine.
- Make sure to fill out all forms and paperwork carefully ahead of time. Representatives from Beltmann Moving and Storage are abreast to the latest regulations and will be happy to provide assistance with these matters.
- If you are unsure about an item, declare it.
