   6   Goods being Detained

In case where postal items have gone through the necessary formalities but kept in custody and cannot be taken out within one day, this can arise from various causes due to which the officers have to detain them for further clearance on the following day, these are :

            6.2 there may be problems on value, tariff or the particulars of goods, the officers may detain the goods pending further

                  documents to be presented by the consignee;

           6.3 Such goods may require import license or subject to control on importation and the consignee does not have

                  supporting license to be presented to the officers.

In case where goods are detained, the consignee must contact the Postal Customs House for presentation of document(s) to the officers and make payment of duties and effect clearance within two months and 15 days from the date of importation. If the period is overdue, the Postal Customs House will take further action on packages being detained in accordance with the Customs Law.
