Transfer of Residence in the United States - CBP
Understanding the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Process
The CBP process is a critical component of the relocation process for individuals returning to the United States with their household goods and effects. If you meet certain eligibility criteria, this process enables you to import your belongings without paying import taxes and duties. It’s essential to familiarize yourself with the requirements to ensure a smooth customs clearance experience.
Applying for Duty-Free Import with Form CBP 3299
To qualify for a duty-free import of your household goods, you need to complete and submit Form CBP 3299 (Declaration for Free Entry of Unaccompanied Articles). This form requires you to provide your personal details, U.S. address, and a comprehensive inventory of the items you plan to bring with you.
Once completed, you must submit the form to the CBP, which will review your application. If approved, you can then share this information with your chosen moving company, like Relocate MENA, to facilitate the customs clearance process for your household goods and effects.
