Customs bonds or bonds allow importers to process imports at US customs. Customs bonds are temporary documents issued on the Importer's behalf, on the shipping company's application, and through the customs broker. Customs bonds are issued annually and must be renewed at the end of every 12 months. Without the bond, the import loads of the shipments can't be cleared by US Customs.
