FAQs

No, a single bond is used for one CBP transaction only. You will need a separate bond for each filing.

If your goods require PGA for clearance, the bond coverage will be based on three times the goods’ value.
If your goods don’t require PGA for clearance, the bond coverage will be based on the goods value + duties & taxes.

The bond approval is determined by the Surety company.

If your commodities are subjected to Anti-dumping/ Countervailing duties, the surety company may ask for a collateral to approve your bond request.

Definitely! When you register with us, we check if your company has a Continuous Bond on file, and if so, we sync the bond information to your business profile so that you can use it for all your ISF and Entry Summary filings.

We don’t offer the single transaction bonds as a standalone product, but as part of the ISF and Entry Summary.

There’s no option to purchase the continuous bond and use it for a shipment that arrived to the US, as the bond’s effective date must be earlier than the arrival date. In such a case, we recommend using the signle entry bond, while the continuous bond can be used for future shipments.
