TIPS TO MINIMIZE THE RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH CUSTOMS CLEARENCE:

1. RESTRICTED AND DANGEROUS GOODS

It is not recommended to send goods from the list of goods prohibited for transportation or import into Uzbekistan. Also, there are rules for the transport of dangerous goods, such as: batteries, accumulators, power bank, liquids, powders.

2. Packages that do not pass through the postal format

Packages weighing over 30kg or worth over $1,000 (including shipping). As well as goods not used for personal use. For example, those goods that are used to make a profit.

3. More than 1000 dollars per quarter - commercial cargo!

According to the norms of the postal format, packages with a total value of up to $ 1,000 per quarter can be sent to one recipient. The calendar year is divided into 4 quarters

I quarter

January

February

March

II quarter

April

May

June

III quarter

July

August

September

IV quarter

October

November

December

Instead of undervaluing orders over $1,000, split the order into multiple packages and ship the packages with a time interval so that they go through customs on different days of the week and for different recipients

4. IDENTICAL PRODUCTS

Send no more than 2-3 packages with identical, similar products on the same day, even if the recipients are completely different people. If you are shipping an indivisible item worth over $1,000, or if you want to ship a very large quantity of items at once, use commercial shipping. More

5. COMPLETE THE DECLARATION CORRECTLY

In the declaration, indicate the correct quantity and description of the goods. Customs may confiscate goods that are not declared or indicated with the wrong quantity. In the description of the goods, you should not write “gift” or “ sample”, even if the goods were sent to you as a sample or as a gift, since any product has a value, which is assessed by customs officers.

6. SAVE INVOICES FOR GOODS

Keep documents confirming the value of the goods. If, in the opinion of the customs, the cost will be underestimated, then for verification they will ask for invoices confirming the cost, bank statements, screenshots of orders, links to the goods. Evidence of value that cannot be verified will not be considered by customs.


WHAT SHOULD I DO IF CUSTOMS STOP THE PACKAGE?

If your package is detained by customs control officers, then you should not worry, since the bulk of the packages are released without charging a fee. Our colleagues from the YUMECS branch in Tashkent will contact you with a notification about the delay in the package. You will need to appear at the customs post. If everything is fine and the goods in the package pass through the duty-free import standards, then it is transferred for delivery in the usual way. If the package still exceeded the limit in value or weight, or if its contents are not used for personal use, then you will have to pay a fee and after the package will be handed over for delivery. The customs authorities of Uzbekistan are an independent state structure, and not divisions of our company. We cannot influence them and in any way guarantee that even following these recommendations will allow you to avoid questions from them. However, we are confident that, using them, most of the issues will be resolved faster and more efficiently.
