With regards to customs clearance, customers must submit an unaccompanied baggage declaration form once they arrive at the destination country. The clearance process will take about 2 weeks for sea freight, and 3 to 5 days for air freight.
Sea and air freight require separate declaration forms. Hence, it is not possible to process customs clearance for both at the same time.
