Clearance Document: Form 3299 Declaration for Free Entry of Unaccompanied Articles

Moving house hold and personal effects to the United States require a Form 3299 Declaration for Free Entry of Unaccompanied Articles. Simply stating the goods are "house hold effects" is not enough information for the shipment to be cleared for entry.

The complete inventory of goods being imported will be treated as the packing list and must be provided to Customs. Please complete the Form 3299 and return to DHL Express.
