Guide to Importing

Before diving into imports, here are a few suggestions for the exporter (Vendor) in order to expedite the clearance of your merchandise by a Customs Broker:

Place all required information on your customs invoice – This includes a detailed item description, number of units/pieces (including units of measure), value, country of manufacture, HTS classification code

Be sure the information on the commercial invoice is legible, clear, and keep the data within each column

An accompanying packing list is recommended

Place marks and numbers on each package with corresponding marks and numbers on your invoice. This will help customs officials identify particular items in your shipment if needed

Be sure that the product and documents are compliant with any partner government agency requests
