CBP In-Bond System

What is CBP Electronic In-Bond System?

Since July 29th, 2019, in-bond exports and in-bond arrivals now have to be reported electronically. This is unlike in the past when it was possible to submit a paper copy of the 7512 to CBP and then get the CBP officer to close the in-bond.

CBP in-bonds include the following in-bond types

  • Type 61- Immediate Transportation
  • Type 62- Transportation & Exportation
  • Type 63- Immediate Exportation

Any legal agent or person

Any legal agent or person that has sufficient interest in the gods as shown in the manifest, bill of lading, certificate of importing carrier or any other document. The agent may be asked to provide evidence showing satisfactory interest

The carrier
