Why are customs regulations important?

Customs regulations govern the control of imports and exports allowed into a country. Customs inspectors protect against terrorist activity by inspecting cargo. A customs inspector works with law enforcement agencies and government departments to expose potential threats and find illegal substances. The inspector is also responsible for finding potentially hazardous materials or unlawful contents within the cargo, and to prevent anything from being brought illegally into the country.

Customs Inspectors have the right to inspect cargo and will work with freight companies and other type of agencies to verify the cargo contents before allowing them into country. It is vital that you familiarise yourself with the regulations of the country you are moving to.
