7201 Procedures for Carrying out Foreign-made Goods (FAQ)

  When carrying out foreign-made goods presently in use, such as a watch, necklace, ring, etc., fill out the names, quantity, and features of items which you carry out on the form for Registration for Carrying out Foreign-made Goods,” submit it to Customs with the listed goods, and obtain Customs confirmation. The form is available at Customs.
  If you put the foreign-made goods in check-in baggage, make sure you obtain the Customs confirmation before checking in your baggage with the airline (shipping) company.
  Without the prior confirmation, these goods cannot be distinguished from articles purchased abroad when you return to Japan and they may be dutiable in some cases.
Be sure to keep this form with you because you are required to submit it to Customs upon return to Japan.
