Business Shipments

Customs Clearance

Shipments of documents in a FedEx Pak or FedEx Envelope require only a completed FedEx International Air Waybill. All other shipments not requiring additional permission or certification require a Commercial Invoice. Customs may hold any export shipment for further processing at their discretion.

Charges for Customs clearance and clearance services may apply for shipments held for declaration and payment of duties and taxes. Contact Customer Help for further details.
