U.S. Customs agency reminding travelers on regulations for international travel
RIO GRANDE VALLEY, TX (KVEO NEWS CENTER 23) — As the busy spring holiday travel season kicks-off, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is reminding travelers to be prepared by educating themselves on the rules and regulations relating to international travel.
CBP reminds travelers that certain traditional items may be prohibited or subject to CBP regulations. For example, traditional Easter/Holy Week agriculture items, such as colorful eggshells known as cascarones, are regulated: travelers can legally import up to 10 cascarones, but they must be completely clean and be presented for inspection.
CBP continues to experience longer wait times than usual due to sequestration, and is working to minimize these impacts, while maintaining the highest standards of security.
