Customs Bonds

Customs requires that all importer security filings and formal entries be supported by a bond. We recommend that if you will be importing multiple times that you take out a continuous bond as it is more cost effective than multiple single transaction bonds.


In addition, importations covered by a continuous bond are less likely to require physical documentary review by Customs, and as a result your shipment will be released more quickly.


Your Customs Broker is the best source for procuring a bond as they are most familiar with your merchandise and in the event that a claim is made against the bond, in the best position to resolve the claim favorably.
