Packing list for ToR
« on: April 12, 2018, 03:26:14 AM »
Hi all,

I have a quick question re the packing list you need to submit with the ToR form: how detailed does it need to be? Eg, do we need to list out every single children's toy or item of clothing we plan to bring, or do they allow for some more generic terms (such as children's toys)?

Also, are there any issues if the list is not 100% accurate in the end - i.e. in case we eventually send over less (or maybe more) than we had on the list submitted?

Many thanks.

Generic descriptions are fine but it can’t be so generic that you simply state “brown box” as an example

Item #1 brown box - women’s clothes & shoes
Item #2 brown box - children’s toys
Item #3 stroller
Item #4 brown box - children’s books or simply books
Item #5 brown box - cookware, kitchen cutlery, cook books
Etc.

Better to over declare than to under declare. You don’t want to get caught shipping more than what you declared because this can hold up your entire shipment. Worse case they may even seize the entire shipment. This is in the rare occurence your shipment was chosen for a random check.

PS I’ve been working in shipping & logistics for more than 10 years.

Related question-

I completed a ToR in order to ship my cats. I did not list any other items on the shipping list (assumed I would fit everything in my luggage.)

However, I now need to have some belongings shipped to me from the US.

How can this be achieved?

Is there a place on the Customs Declaration form (which will be filled out by my friend when he mails the packages) to indicate my ToR Reference Number?

I am trying to avoid having to pay taxes/VAT on my personal belongings and am just wondering if I need to complete a new ToR for those items since my first was only for my cats. (Or perhaps it somehow covers all my belongings for 12 months, hopefully.)

Cheers!

@UKColombiaUSA may I ask what you decided to do? We're in a similar boat.  We need a ToR now as the cat shipping company has requested it. My husband is British so we intend to apply for the ToR under his name rather than wait for my Spouse Visa (I'm applying this week but have yet to actually hit send). 

I intended to OVER declare JUST in case we decide to bring certain items but if they don't make it on the shipping container, we'll leave them.  I'm also curious if there are any negative repercussions of over-declaring.

Additionally, I'm wondering about receipts.  How important are these? Is it just for the big items? Will they mostly worry about that? Is is most important to provide receipts for items that look new or are expensive? Is it most important to provide receipts for items purchased within the past 6 months so that we are appropriately taxed?

Thanks in advance all for any input.
