Among them, the United States does not need to declare the ISF requirement that it must be provided to the U.S. Customs 48 hours before sailing, otherwise there will be a USD5000 fine, AMS fee of $25 per ticket, 40 per ticket if amended. Since July 1, 2016, all goods imported into the Philippines must be declared AMS in advance. In addition to the original EBS, CIC will have an additional AMS surcharge.

And since February 25, 2009, all arriving cargo that violates this rule and does not use pallets will be fined SAR1,000 (US $267)/20'and SAR1,500 (US $400)/40', respectively.

8. India

Under FOB or CIF conditions, regardless of whether the bill of lading is "TOORDER OF SHIPPER" (instructional bill of lading) or not, and whether the bill of lading is in your hands, the Indian side can not pay and is technically legitimate. As long as the name of the Indian customer is shown on the BILL OFENTRY (import declaration manifest) and IGM (import manifest), you have lost the right to carry the goods, whether the bill of lading is in your hands or not. Up, so make sure you pay 100% in advance as much as possible.
