Personal Entry Requirements Part 2

Personal Entry Requirements Part 2

Welcome to our “Customs With Katy!” blog feature, where we focus on customs-related topics, brought to you by none other than Phillips’ very own Move Coordinator, Katy Duncan! In Part 2 of the ‘Personal Entry Requirements’ series, we’ll identify for you the documentation requirements to have ready for US Customs (depending on your class from Part 1) when crossing the US border.

 

Documents Required by US Customs

Your driver must have the following documents in his possession to clear your shipment with Us Customs at the United States Port of Entry:

 

Returning Residents:

  • Photocopy of passport (inside page showing picture and description of importer, including the signature portion) for each family member – must be in colour, legible and valid
  • Photocopy of a second piece of ID (drivers licence or NEXUS card) – in colour and legible
  • 3299 Form (Declaration of Free Entry of Un-accompanied Articles)
  • Gypsy Moth Form

 

Non-Residents:

  • Photocopy of passport (inside page showing picture and description of importer, including the signature portion) for each family member – must be in colour, legible and valid
  • Photocopy of green card, residency card or visa stamp and, if applicable, your visa page in passport – must be in colour and legible
  • 3299 Form (Declaration of Free Entry of Un-accompanied Articles)
  • Gypsy Moth Form

 Note: Every family member who will be entering the United Sates must have a passport; and if non-resident have a valid visa. The driver must have all passports and, if applicable, visas for all family members when crossing.

 

For special circumstances:

  • Estate moves
  • Snow Birds
  • Vacation Homes
  • Commercial
