International Travel Tips














United States Customs Attorneys

One of the most exciting, transformative things you can do is travel the world. You pack your bags, catch a flight to an exotic location where you don’t know the language, the food, the culture, or anything firsthand. It’s exhilarating, whimsical, and gives you a greater perspective on the world.

When you come back stateside, though, there are some rules and regulations you should be aware of. You want to be able to get back to your friends and family without hassle or worry. Of course, your U.S. Passport is a must, but you should also declare everything you are bringing in from abroad, even if you bought it in a duty-free shop.

  • If you are traveling with a lot of new jewelry, be sure to have the appraisals or receipts.
  • Be cautious buying something from a street vendor. Keep in mind that the merchandise may be counterfeit and/or unsafe and you may have to surrender it to U.S. Customs and Border Protection when you get home.
  • Be aware that many foreign made medications are not FDA approved, and you cannot bring them into the country.
  • Don’t bring any Cuba-made products into the U.S., no matter where you purchased them.
