Customs Clearance

Customs clearance refers to the process of declaring goods to Customs authorities when entering or leaving a country. Goods subject to customs clearance include items that are being imported or exported, as well as personal effects and commercial shipments.

The purpose of customs clearance is to ensure that all applicable import duties and taxes are paid and that goods comply with all relevant regulations. To clear customs, businesses or individuals must provide detailed information about the shipment, including its value, origin, destination, and contents. 

Businesses or individuals may also be required to submit supporting documentation, such as invoices or bills of lading. Once customs officers have cleared the shipment, they can release it for delivery.
