CUSTOMS REGULATIONS — UNITED STATES

UNITED STATES CUSTOMS - Inspectors are located at Canadian Atlantic Ports but are not permitted to collect dues. To avoid complications and payment of duties to Canadian Customs, citizens of U.S. returning from Europe should pack new goods purchased or otherwise acquired abroad in one or more receptacles which may be checked on landing and forwarded in bond to destination.

CHECKED BAGGAGE - Checked baggage not containing dutiable articles, or new goods in excess of the exemption to which the owners may be entitled, will be examined by the U.S. Customs Inspectors, and no further examination will be made at U.S. frontier or destination.

Such baggage is not examined by the Canadian Customs. Hand baggage should not contain dutiable articles, and will be examined by Canadian Customs on landing, and by U.S. Customs Inspectors on train at U.S. border.

Passengers for U.S. will be issued by Purser with U.S. Customs Baggage Declaration form for completion in duplicate, and for presenting to U.S. Customs Inspector at examination time. Values must be shown in U.S. currency.

RETURNING RESIDENTS - Returning residents of the U.S. must declare all articles acquired abroad, in baggage or on their persons, whether by purchase, gift, or otherwise, and whether dutiable or free of duty.

Exemption will be allowed by Customs Officers of articles aggregating not over fico in value, if for personal or household use or as souvenirs or curios, and whether intended for personal use of passengers or as gifts or presents to others, provided articles are not bought on commission for another person nor intended for sale.

Articles so exempt from duty must, nevertheless, be declared. Each member of family is entitled to exemption of $100 for articles purchased abroad, and when a husband and wife and minor and dependent children are travelling together articles may be grouped and allowance made to one member.

ARTICLES FROM ABROAD - Articles acquired abroad shipped from port of landing to destinations in U.S. by express, should be declared to U.S. Customs Inspector in charge at port of Landing, and also to Inspector on the train at U.S. border, for duty exemption to which owner may be entitled. Non-residents of United States destined to that country must declare all articles in baggage or on their persons which do not constitute wearing apparel, articles of personal adornment, toilet articles, or similar personal effects, WHETHER INTENDED FOR THEIR PERSONAL USE OR FOR OTHERS. THEY MUST ALSO declare all articles of wearing apparel, jewelry, and other articles of personal adornment, toilet articles and similar effects WHEN NOT OWNED BY THEM.

Professional books, implements, instruments, and tools of trade, occupation or employment, in actual possession of persons emigrating to United States, owned and used by them abroad, are admitted free of duty.
