Dear Sir Thank you for visiting our site Regarding your question, In the case of food products such as bakers’ wares, In principle, Import requirements for food products should be confirmed by the relevant agencies* in accordance with the Special Law on Imported Food Safety Management. * the Food and Drug Administration(www.mfds.go.kr/eng, ☎ 1577-1255 or ☎ + 82-43-719-1564) The customs office carries out customs clearance based on the confirmation of the relevant agency. Also, it may not be possible to clear customs if the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety requests the prohibition of customs clearance because of the inclusion of harmful ingredients. For reference, food should not be opened, and ingredients should be identified. In other words, there may be a customs inspection to check for the presence of harmful substances such as drugs. of course, you should report whether or not you have food products on your traveler declaration form. Under the Foreign Trade Act, except as provided for in the laws specified in the Export and Import Approval Confirmation, if imported for the purpose of self-consumption, customs clearance is possible upon confirmation by the head of the customs office. But if you give it to someone else, it may not be self-consumption. The KCS Customer Support Center only provides general customs administration procedures and related laws and regulations. If you have any questions regarding customs clearance, including self-consumption and exemption from requirements, you should contact the department directly responsible for the customs clearance. For more information, please contact Incheon International Airport. * Incheon International Airport Travel Personnel Civil Affairs Charge: ☎032-722-4422, ☎032-723-5119 Thank you.
