3 Be sure to include the recipient's phone number, along with other accurate information. In some cases the recipient's tax I.D. number is required for Customs purposes.

A Customs value and description must be completed for all shipments with no exceptions. The "Total Declared Value for Carriage" must not exceed the "Total Declared Value for Customs." The "Total Declared Value for Customs" (the selling or replacement price of the shipment's contents) must be the same as the value declared on the commercial invoice.
