What is Entry Summary?
"Entry Summary" refers to the documentation necessary to enable U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess duties, collect statistics, and determine whether other requirements of law have been met.
Contact CBP at the port of entry to make the arrangement where the consignment will arrive, and documentation and duties will be filed.
Declare entry for goods once they arrive in the U.S. The importer must declare how the goods will be entered once they arrive.
