Some shipments, especially those shipped by couriers, are released automatically or based upon the available information, However, Customs expects all the correct and accurate information to be confirmed within a specific time frame. The time frame is within 5 business days. Low value shipments are given a bit more time; however, we prefer to keep within the 5 day time frame as the shipment details will be more fresh in your mind and there is not a risk of getting AMPS penalties for failing to meet the deadlines.
This is a computer-generated notification for when we do up your paperwork to advise you that we have started the process.
This is not an invoice or a notification that your shipment has cleared the border. You can receive a release notification if you wish by asking to have this added to your A&A account profile.
