QuestionATA carnet import and re-export handcarry arrangement
I am going to handcarry some watches to Seoul with ATA Carnet for exhibition use. I will arrive ICN on Sunday afternoon, would you please let me know the operation hour of customs office at ICN airport? Should I fill in the declaration form and submit to customs officer? For re-export, please advise where to have the ATA carnet endorsed. Appreciate if you can share me the detailed procedure. Thank you.
AnswersYou don't have to worry about the office hour of the Incheon Airport Customs Office as customs officers work in shift there. Please follow the guidance of customs officers at the customs office after submitting a declaration form you filled in on airplane checking that you have goods to declare.
In a case of departure, make sure to tell INFORMATION DESK that you have goods to declare to a customs office then they will give you guidance. Then you only have to declare your goods following the guidance to customs officers.

AnswersYou need to meet certain requirements for you and your car to have your car recognized as moving items. Also, while cars exported from Korea are exempted from tax, Santafes produced in the U.S. are subject to tax. If your car fails to be recognized as a moving item, it is subject to general import declaration. Please contact 02 510 1188 or 02 510 1199 (Customs Clearance Center for International Moving Items of the Seoul Customs Office) to inquire about tax for imports.

Questionimportation with Cites and ATA
I will be visiting Seoul at the end of march for a business meeting with some new customers. I need to bring with me samples of belts made of crocodile: they will be accompanied by all the required documents from Italy ( Cites and ATA document )... I woul like to know what is the procedure to follow when I arrive at the airporto to clear the custom?
AnswersThe crocodile belts you wish to bring into Korea need to be verified with Han River Basin Environmental Management Office under Ministry of Environment regarding CITES.
Additionally, in case of using the ATA Carnet to bring in the goods concerned it is required to submit to the Customs in Korea the ATA from Italian Chamber of Commerce. Regarding the customs procedures, after claiming your baggage you can fill out the customs declaration form which indicates that you have goods to declare and then submit the form to a customs official who will give guidance on the clearance for accompanied goods.
QuestionShipment requires importer's registration/identification number for clearance
AnswersIf you have a foreign nationality, you are able to make an import declaration with Alien Registration Card Number or Passport Number, so you don't need to get Clearance Unique Code (CUC) issued.
However, if you want to obtain CUC No. (Declaration ID No.) to ensure protection of your personal information, you surely can obtain the CUC after identifying yourself at the CUC Issuing System, via public key certificate or cell phone, with Alien Registration Card Number given by Korea Immigration Service.
