In short, a customs bond is a required CBP regulation that acts as a financial guarantee between customs, an importer, and a surety company to ensure that importers pay customs all import fees, duties & taxes, or other customs activities.
The bond is required when goods worth over $2500, or for Chinese goods values at over $250.
If you are a one-time importer, we recommend using the single bond to clear your shipment.
The Bond is used per ISF/Entry filing, meaning, you can't use the single ISF bond for the Entry, but will need to purchase a separated bond for it.
The single bond is available for purchase from within the ISF / Entry flow, simply check the purchase option and we'll get cracking on it!
For ongoing imports, a continuous bond is most cost-effective.
The bond can be used for all ISF and Entry Summary for a period of 12 months.
The purchase process takes several business days, and is available from within the ISF / Entry flow, and at anytime from your eezyimport company profile!
