Hello all!

I'm planning ahead here, but hopefully will need this information in the next month! And I cannot find an answer in the archives.

When entering the US, I understand that my lady and her child will each be asked to fill out a Customs and Border Protection Form 6059B as well as a CBP Form I-94. In the instructions for the Form 6059B as to Line 15, the language for non-US residents says:

"If you are a visitor (non-U.S. Resident), print the total value of all goods (including commercial merchandise) you or any family members traveling with you are bringing into the United States and will remain in the United States.
Note: Visitors (non-U.S. Residents) are normally entitled to an exemption of $100.

Declare all articles on this form. For gifts, please indicate the retail value. Use the reverse side of this form if additional space is needed to list the items you will declare."

http://www.cbp.gov/x...ration_form.xml

She will have nothing other than clothing, personal effects and a musical instrument. Must she declare the value of these or does the term "goods" refer only to non-personal items? If she must declare the value of her personal effects, how much does she state and what fees are associated with this? unsure.gif

Thank you VJers for your guidance! smile.gif
