•  Customs Guide Things you Should Know

While relocation in a foreign country may seem exciting but there are a few things you must be prepared for, before entering any country in the world and that is the Customs Regulations which differ widely from one country to another. You could call the customs of a country the legal watchdogs deployed by the local Government, who control the inflow and outflow of goods (including animals, plants and dangerous items) in and out of their country. They oversee the personal effects and cargo which are brought in as imports as well as goods which are exported out of the country, according to policies laid out by their Government. While the imports that are considered safe and not dangerous or unlawful are granted permission to enter, and those that are not, will remain at the port of entry and sometimes shipped back to their country of origin.

Thus it is important for you to know about any prohibition, etc of the goods which you plan to take with you during relocation. Not just prohibition, many of the goods that you bring with you might invite heavy customs duty which can dig a hole in your pocket, since the ultimate authority to grant your goods permission is the customs. Fortunately all customs rules applicable for a particular country are available in their customs websites for public knowledge. Embassy or Consular offices also may help you become aware of the various customs regulations. Customs.ustreas.gov is a good website where you can access information regarding what procedures you have to follow before you leave your home country.
