Additional information

The customs officer verifies if the goods imported are still in good conditions and not expired. He also checks the actual quantity of goods to confirm it matches what's written on the invoice.
The customs officer insures that the actual car number plate, weight, container and seal numbers match the ones written on the declaration note.

This step does not apply to importers classified in the "Gold Card Scheme" and "Authorized Economic Operators" (AEO) program, due to proven compliance with customs regulations. This means that their cargo gets an automatic release while being selected in blue and green lanes.
