  • Household And Personal

    I am moving to the US with household and personal effects; How can i make the entry process more efficient?

    When completing the Customs and Border Protection Form(CBP Form) 6059B, “Customs Declaration,” for accompanying goods or the CBP Form 3299 “Declaration For Free Entry of Unaccompanied Articles,” the statement that the goods are “household effects” is not enough information. The complete inventory of imported goods will be treated as the packing list and must be provided to CBP upon request.

    Household effects are furniture, dishes, linens, libraries, artwork and similar household furnishings for your personal use. In order to avoid paying duty on these items, the articles must have either been available for your use or used in a household where you were a resident for one year. And are not intended for any other person or for sale.

    Personal effects are items that belong to and are used by one person, such as wearing apparel, jewelry, photographic equipment and tape recorders. They cannot be entered as household effects. As with everything entering the US, these items will still be subject to inspection by Customs and Border Protection officers.

    Canadians (who live in the U.S. for certain parts of the year, known as “snowbirds”) must also submit a CBP Form 3299 in order to import unaccompanied household effects into the U.S., although not permanently. No form is needed if you plan to travel along with your goods, however, a manifest listing the items contained in your vehicle is necessary to present to the officer at the Port of Entry.

  • Ship My Car/Vehicle

    Can i import or ship my car or vehicle with my personal and household effects packed inside?

    Household and personal effects should not be packed in the car or other vehicle that you are importing into the United States.

    Vehicles are subject to various federal agencies requirements, increasing the possibility that the vehicle will be delayed (or possibly refused) entry. If your household and personal effects are packed in the vehicle, they would also be delayed or refused entry. Furthermore, if U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) decides to inspect the interior of your vehicle, any goods inside the vehicle would be at risk for breakage.

    If you are driving your vehicle across the border, CBP does not have a problem with your household or personal effects being in the vehicle. Just be sure to declare your household and personal effects on a CBP Form 6059 at the border. Also be aware that an entry must be filed with CBP on the vehicle in order to register it in the state you reside. If you failed to formally enter the car when you drove it into the U.S., you can file the entry and pay duty at your nearest CBP office.

    To learn about the requirements for importing a vehicle into the U.S., see Importing a Motor Vehicle located on our website.

  • Part Time Resident

    What is the definition of a part time Resident? Are part time residents exempt from duty on household items?

    A part time resident may maintain two households , one in the United States and one in another country. They may be in the United States for business, for pleasure, or for educational purposes. The visit can be for a few weeks or for several years.

    A part time resident may be classified, for CBP purposes, as either a returning resident or a nonresident. The status of either returning resident or nonresident is dependent upon several things and is usually decided on a case by case basis.

    Deciding factors include:

    citizenship
    where the traveler pays taxes
    where they are employed
    what country or state drivers license they possess, etc.
    A U.S. citizen is presumed to be a resident unless they can show that they are a resident of another country (possess a residency visa for another country, a round-trip ticket to return to another country, etc.) A citizen of another country residing in the U.S. must have a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (formerly Immigration and Naturalization Service) Form I-551, residency visa, also called a “green card,” or LPR card (Lawful Permanent Resident) to be considered a returning resident.

    Part time residents may import household goods for use in their U.S. residence free of duty only if those goods have been in their foreign residence at least 1 year. See answer ID #107 regarding the declaration of goods.
