thanks for your cooperation with me.


Hello Amir,

I would really need a detailed list of the items you plan on bringing in order to give you the proper duty rates.  You should have a Customs Broker meet you at the airport in order to facilitate the clearance for you.

How often will you be importing?  If this is just a one time shipment then I would not suggest you purchasing a continuous bond, but if you will be importing often it will save you money over time.

Please respond back to me in PRIVATE mode so we can exchange contact info.  If you cannot find the option for private mode when replying try starting a new message to me and look for the private option.

Best regards,
