The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has recently proposed to increase the informal entry limit from $2,000 to $2,500. According to CBP, the limit increase will reduce administrative burden for importers and others by expanding the informal entry procedures. In addition, this measure is expected to save the trade industry approximately $11 million in processing fees annually for merchandise.
However, please note that all food and beverage products entering the United States not only have to conform with CBP requirements, but U.S. Food and Drug Administration requirements as well.
