Clearance Document: Temporary Importation Bond

A Temporary Importation Bond (TIB) is created to import a shipment duty-free with the expectation of exporting the commodities within a year. Common scenarios include goods returned for repair, tools of trade and samples for soliciting orders. Based on the documentation provided, your shipment may be eligible for entry under a TIB.
U.S. Customs Regulations 19 CFR 10.31 states that these articles may not be put to any other use than declared on the entry. The commodities cannot be sold to any party in the U.S. before the one-year period expiration. You must either cancel the TIB by exporting the commodities following specific procedures outlined by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (Customs), or apply for and receive an extension.

Be aware, you must ensure cancellation of the TIB to avoid Customs penalties of duty charges double the amount you would have paid had the TIB not been opened, plus fees.

Please complete and submit to DHL Express.
