Customs Declaration Form

What is a Customs Declaration Form?

A customs declaration form lists the contents of the package for customs. There are two types, namely CN22 and CN23. When sending packages overseas, fill out one of the forms with a detailed description of the contents, including the name, quantity and price of each item and affix or attach it to the package.

Parcel and EMS labels include two CN23 customs declaration forms, so there is no need to prepare them separately.

  • Some countries or regions require three or more copies. In that case, download the additional number required here and insert them into the invoice envelope after filling them out. Alternatively, you could temporarily remove the CN23 label and make copies of it.
CN22 Required when including articles less than 300 SDR in value. Explain
CN23 Required when including articles 300 SDR or more in value.
