For the import of products to the U.S., Customs Bonds need to be purchased.
Customs Bonds protect the importer from unexpected costs from a wide range of Customs issues. A Customs Bond (sometimes referred to as a U.S. Surety Bond) assures U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP) that the importer will fulfill any financial responsibilities for Customs duties, penalties, and other obligations.
The proper Customs Bonds provide a buffer between CBP and the importer, reducing hassles and delays, and is required by CBP for nearly all imports.
