Miami Airport Customs Declaration Laws

This article offers some information regarding Miami airport customs declaration laws. When entering or returning to the United States, you will be asked to complete a Customs Form on which you must list the following:

Anything you purchased while out of the country.
Items you are carrying with you into the U.S.
Items you inherited.
Products you bought duty-free, whether it was on a ship, on a plane, or where you vacationed.
Souvenirs or other items purchased for someone else.

If an item that you brought out of the country broke while you were gone, you must list it if it was repaired out of the country, even if you were not charged for the repair.

If you plan on using an item in your business or selling that item, even if it is merchandise that you brought with you from the United States, you must list it.

If you purchased something in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, or in a Caribbean country that is part of the Basin Economic Recovery Act, but the merchant is shipping the item to you in the States, you must still declare it.

The CBP declaration must include the U.S. currency equivalent of what you paid for each item, including taxes. You may estimate if you are not certain of the exact figure. If you did not purchase the item yourself, such as in the case of gifts, please estimate its fair market value in the country you received it, listed in U.S. Dollars.

Upon arriving back to your Miami holiday apartments, you’ll enjoy all the souvenirs from your vacation and the memories as well.
