WHERE EXPERIENCE REALLY COUNTS...
as many different customs requirements and procedures as there are
countries - and they are constantly changing! MERIDIAN maintains an
updated directory of these requirements and makes all of this
information available to our clients. You may check the "country
information" request form on our information and quote form on this
web site or you can call our "toll free" number where this
information is readily obtainable. Just ask for the summary of
customs requirements for the country to which you plan to relocate.
HELP US HELP YOU...
Nearly all countries
have specific regulations forbidding or restricting the import of
liquor and firearms. Some countries insist on viewing the content of
any video tapes and to include such tapes in your shipment could
delay your goods at Customs. In addition, all hazardous materials
such as aerosol cans, paints, oils, acids and other flammable or
combustible items must be excluded from your shipment. If you have
any questions consult the "customs requirements sheet" for the
specific country AND contact their local Consulate in your area.
FOR SHIPMENTS COMING TO THE UNITED STATES:
You must complete a Department of the Treasury Customs Form 3299
entitled DECLARATION FOR FREE ENTRY QF UNACCOMPANIED ARTICLES, along
with US Customs Form IIRC 159 (386) which is the SUPPLEMENTAL
DECLARATION TO CF 3299 FOR UNACCOMPANIED AND HOUSEHOLD EFFECTS.
