When you ship goods into another country, they go through a Customs inspection. Some countries require an identification number for the person who bought the goods. Customs agents use the number to track Tax and Duty that may be owed on the shipment.
The type of number required will depend on the country. It could be called a:
- Social Security Number,
- Tax Identification Number,
- Passport Number,
- Control Number,
- National Identification Number,
In some cases, the carrier will contact you and ask for your identification number. If you don't provide the number, your shipment won't clear Customs.
Please provide the requested information. This will ensure speedy processing through Customs.
