Customs clearance in El Paso can be complicated. If you have opened a new business and you want to bring items into the United States for the first time, you need to know the rules and the process for importing items. Since the rules and requirements can vary significantly depending upon exactly what you are importing and what you intend to do with it once the items are in the United States, it is a good idea to speak with a professional about customs clearance in El Paso.

One of the first steps you are likely going to need to take is to get a customs bond if you are going to be importing items into the country.  You may be able to get a single use bond to allow you to import one load or you may be able to get a customs bond allowing you to import many different shipments of materials.  In some cases, you can also use the customs bond of your customs broker. The purpose of the customs bond is to ensure all duties and import costs and fees can be paid.

You will also need to make sure that your shipment is packaged appropriately, does not contain prohibited materials, has appropriate descriptions and information, and that all of the materials aboard the shipment have undergone any necessary safety testing at approved laboratory facilities. These are just some of the initial steps that must be taken for successful customs clearance.  Once your item is scheduled to arrive in the U.S. the next steps in the process of customs clearance involve interfacing with Customs and Border Patrol.
