The US Customs Bureau instigated, increased awareness of all shipments which enter the USA after 9/11.
For this reason, expect that customs officers will thoroughly check import documentation and reject incomplete or incorrect documents. The shipments such documents accompany will be placed on hold, meaning you will not have access to your goods until authorized by customs and your shipment will incur demurrage charges.
An increasing number of shipments entering the USA are x-rayed and/or randomly selected for physical inspection. These inspections will also cause delays in customs clearance, once again preventing your access to the shipment until authorized and also incurring demurrage and/or per diem charges.
At present customs clearance normally takes an average of 4 to 8 days from the shipment’s arrival.
Nobel Relocation advises you to forward all import documentation to our office at least seven (7) days prior to your shipment’s arrival, including:
Imported motor vehicles are subject to safety standards under the Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966, revised under the Imported Vehicle Safety Compliance Act of 1988; to bumper standards under the Motor Vehicle Information and Cost Savings Act of 1972, which became effective in 1978; and to air pollution control standards under the Clean Air Act of 1968, as amended in 1977, and 1990.
If vehicles manufactured abroad conform to U.S. safety, bumper, and emission standards, it is because these vehicles are exported for sale in the United States. Therefore, it is unlikely that a vehicle obtained abroad meets all relevant standards. Be skeptical of claims by a foreign dealer or other seller that a vehicle meets these standards or can readily be brought into compliance. Vehicles entering the United States that do not conform with U.S. safety standards must be brought into compliance, exported, or destroyed.
This pamphlet provides essential information for U.S. residents, military or civilian government employees, and foreign nationals who are importing a vehicle into the U.S. It includes U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) requirements and those of other agencies whose regulations we enforce. Since Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Department of Transportation (DOT) requirements are subject to change, we recommend that you contact these agencies before buying a vehicle abroad.
There are several customs regulations that apply to the importation of a car into the United States. These regulations are designed to protect the domestic automotive industry and ensure that imported vehicles meet safety and environmental standards. Here are some of the main regulations that apply to the importation of a car into the United States:
Vehicle Eligibility: In order to be imported into the United States, a car must be eligible for importation under the regulations of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This means that the car must meet certain safety and emission standards.
Import Duty: Imported cars are subject to an import duty, which is a tax that is levied on imported goods. The rate of import duty varies depending on the country of origin and the type of car being imported.
Formal Entry: To import a car into the United States, you must file a formal entry with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP ). This requires the submission of certain documents, including a bill of lading, a commercial invoice, and a certificate of origin.
Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) Verification: To ensure that an imported car has not been stolen or altered, CBP may require the VIN to be verified by a CBP-approved independent VIN verifier.
Customs Bond: In some cases, you may be required to post a customs bond, which is a financial guarantee that you will comply with all customs regulations and pay any applicable duties and taxes.
It is important to be aware of and comply with these regulations when importing a car into the United States. Failure to do so can result in delays, fines, and other penalties.
Supply Chain Issues Impacting the International Moving Industry
There is currently a shipping and supply chain crisis directly affecting every facet of international commerce; its impact is far-reaching enough to touch the lives of consumers and businesses around the world. Simple solutions are not available in our interconnected global economy. While significant industry efforts are underway to highlight the issues and draw attention to them, the international moving industry and its customers struggle to be heard by government regulators.
Significant delays and container shortages are occurring with all shipping lines. While we do our due diligence and always have confirmed container reservations in hand, oftentimes containers are unavailable and reserved vessels do not sail at all or are very delayed.
Unfortunately, these situations cause unexpected and unavoidable expenses charged to the owner of the goods. When this happens, or when the shipping lines add new charges with little or no notice, these charges will be added to your invoice with proper backup. We do our best to prevent and avoid these charges, if possible.
WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!
