When travelling to an international airport and you have a stop at a different international airport en route to the first airport do you have to go through customs at the first airport?
Just what it says, they have the package and will not release it to the buyer. They have seized the package, but not necessarily the contents. It could be for a number of reasons, illegal, customs broker messed up the paperwork. May have a shipping label from Mexico, but actually came from India. Get a good Customs Broker, if you want your goods. FedEx is actually allowed to clear through Customs itself. Custom Officials are…
Do you have to clear customs at Sydney airport if you are transiting to Auckland on Air New Zealand?
Terminal C is where the customs facilities are located at JKF airport. You would need to visit customs prior to departure if you aren't a US citizen, and/or passing through. A US citizen would enter customs when they arrive at the international location. To contact JFK airport information, call (718) 244-4444.
There are customs at Dublin airport. All non-European Union travellers must go through customs. If your journey was entirely within the EU, you can use the blue channel, where formal customs don't operate, after reclaiming your baggage. However customs officers will monitor this area and may operate checks. If you have something to declare to Customs you must do so. Customs officers are very vigilant and arrests are often made.
How long does it take for packages to get through customs It's been in customs since the 17th of feb I don't know who to contact or anything HELP?
If you are arriving from Puerto Rico in a country other than the United States, you must go through Customs. If you are arriving in a US airport from Puerto Rico, for instance, if you are arriving in Miami, or New York, or Los Angeles, you are on a domestic flight and will not be asked to go through Customs. If you started in Puerto Rico, you started from within the US. If you started…
The first step is to deplane and go through immigration/passport control. Then you pick your luggage up from the correct carousel. The next stage is to go through customs and agriculture. Finally you either recheck your bag and go through security to get to a connecting flight or you leave the airport.
When you arrive at an airport is your baggage automatically moved onto a connecting flight or do you have to pick it up and take it to the connecting flight?
Depends on the size of the airport and whether you're passing any customs/state barriers or not. Travelling from the US to Europe for instance is passing a customs barrier, which usually means that you'll have to carry your baggage through customs yourself. Once inside Europe baggage can then be forwarded automatically pretty much regardless of how many connecting flights you have.
It often takes at least a week to receive a parcel from India. I placed an order for a package through express USPS international mail, but it took almost five days for my package just to clear through customs and I have still not received that package on day nine. Sometimes the wait is longer and sometimes it's shorter. All I know is that I hope it comes soon.
Depends on the country. I have been through customs in the US, Italy, Germany, UK, and Russia. The basically each asks to see your passport, sometimes there are papers to fill out before landing ( this was true with the UK) that you will hand them with the passport. They have the right to ask you to open your bags for an inspection. Going into Russia really seemed to be the toughest. If you have…
A package tourist goes on a package tour, where they pay for all flights, transfers, accommodation, etc., together and in advance, usually through a travel agency. An independent traveler books different aspects of their trip separately (for example, they might book their flight on the Internet, then get a taxi from the airport to their hotel, pay for their hotel when they arrive at their destination, etc.) and does not usually rely on an agency.
Whatever the law may be when ordering seeds over seas they go through customs. Seeds can be sent using STEALTH shipping. They put the seeds in a wallet or CD case. If customs opens your package you will get a letter stating that they have been confiscated, the odds of customs opening your package is very slim. I have ordered seeds many of times and know many people that order seeds weekly, believe me, its…
I have several vendors in Mainland China that I work with, and I have found that as a rule of thumb, most packages pass through US Customs in a matter of hours without inspection, and even those that have come through with "US Customs and Border Inspection" seals (meaning they have been inspected) generally spend less than 48 hours in the hands of US Customs. Keep in mind that I generally use EMS shipping, and…
Highly unlikely ! Even if you use a private courier - they'll still have to clear the package through customs. Customs clearing does not give priority to courier items - they're treated exactly the same as any other parcel. In theory you could take it there yourself, as part of your luggage on a plane - which would mean it gets there in the same time you do - but that would be highly expensive.
