Customs Clearance Meaning in Getting Your Shipment to Your Missionary

If you have ever shipped and tracked a package internationally, then you have most likely waited 'patiently' for this shipment to clear customs.  The customs clearance meaning in getting your shipment to your missionary is critical and you can aid in the process.  The actual definition of customs clearance is:

The documented permission to pass that a national customs authority grants to imported goods so that they can enter the country or to exported goods so that they can leave the country. The custom clearance is typically given to a shipping agent to prove that all applicable customs duties have been paid and the shipment has been approved.

Understanding and abiding by the rules and regulations of each country when shipping commodities into their country is paramount in the customs clearance process.  We must know their rules and work with the country and not try to be sneaky.  Global Mission Shipping has a page dedicated to the rules and regulations of most countries in which missionaries are serving.  Simply click here and scroll down to the country in which your missionary is serving to learn what items are restricted and what items require additional paperwork.  This knowledge will assist in making the customs clearance process much easier and ensure delivery to your missionary.
