San Juan, Puerto Rico - U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced Wednesday new enhancements to facilitate arrivals from international destination, as well as some travel tips for this summer.
CBP announces the implementation of a new English version of the Customs Declaration form (Form 6059B). The new English version CBP Form 6059B incorporates new language and is available in electronic format. Travelers arriving after July 31, 2014, will be required to use the new version.
Any traveler arriving from an international destination during CBP processing is required to present the Customs Declaration Form (Form 6059B). Family members residing in one household and traveling together can fill out one form for the whole family.
Travelers who wish to use the electronic format of the form can download, print it out and sign the form from the privacy of their homes. Provided the form is properly completed and signed, the fillable form is the equivalent of the standard form and will be accepted accordingly.
The new form can be downloaded from: http://www.cbp.gov/newsroom/publications/forms.
