When handling shipping to Israel from USA, it’s crucial to get the customs declaration right. If your order doesn’t surpass $75 in value and all paperwork is in order, your package will head straight to the recipient upon arrival in Israel. No need to deal with customs if you stay within the duty-free limit. However, it’s not always that simple, so it’s essential to know how to accurately fill out customs forms online.

How to Complete Customs Forms on the Meest Portal

With the online form on the Meest portal, you can easily fill out the customs declaration to meet international shipping standards. When shipping to Israel from USA, it’s crucial to provide accurate and detailed information about the package contents, including all types of items for personal use, specifying their list, weight, and total value.

When filling out the declaration, remember:

  • Avoid using general terms (e.g., “Clothing,” “Shoes”). Be specific (e.g., “Jeans,” “Sneakers”).
  • Ensure the declared value is accurate. Even if the contents are a gift or a free sample, they still hold value. Understating the value may lead to Customs delays and additional charges.
  • Include the recipient’s name and details of a real, legal adult individual.
