I initially studied in Canada and will now be shipping my stuff (mainly my clothes) to New York to continue my studies (as a student). I was told that I would have to complete the CBP 3299 form . I have a few questions I hope you can answer:
Under section II, question 10, I selected A(1) and C(1). My question is: Where do I list the personal effects (the clothing) on the form? I could put it under part D of section IV, but under that section, there is no mention of personal effects for non-residents in A, B or C. To make this question possibly clearer for you to understand, under part IV, I selected B(8), meaning that on the next page, I should only list items which pertain to B(8), i.e. household effects. So as I said earlier, where would I list "clothing"?
My second question pertains to the value given for each item I state. If I do list clothing (which are my used clothes and not for sale), what value should I put? The total value of the clothing may be around $300 but I'm not sure if customs sees this, then I would have to pay duties on my clothing. May I please have your suggestions?
