Customs Forms

It is being reported on CC that customs forms are no longer being required unless you have purchases/amounts that must be declared.  This is said to be effective May 1.

Anybody just back from a cruise have any information about this?

I would be glad to see this change, since I'm one who feels it necessary to list every magnet, tshirt, etc.

I hope this is true. I always wondered if anyone ever really read those forms anymore.

Probably just a way to save a bit of money for the Govt.

I am pretty sure you still need to verbally report what used to go on the forms.Big Smile

We had to on recent Princess cruise ...I don't see it going away

We would still save all the receipts and list of stuff purchased because we have to fill out a form when we travel back to Canada.

Gov is trying to go paperless. Even I94s are now electronic

We've done the APC (Automated Passport Control) but so far, there are no kiosks available at ports to use it!

I had a chance to use the APC at FLL, but never got around to downloading it.

As far as saving paper, I will still have to write my list out in case I get sent to the secondary inspection. Either my paper or theirs, either way it's not saving the earth.

Just off the Vista from the Caribbean......if under $ 800.00 no form needed and no questions asked in Miami. They did spend more time looking at your ID photo and you, the line moved fast.

Thank you! I was hoping it was for real.

Good to know. this makes so much more sense.Big Smile
