Udemy – Introduction to Customs and Immigration for U.S. Travelers [100% off]
LATEST: Course Fully Updated For November 2015
When entering the borders of a foreign country (and upon re-entering your home country’s borders), the government will want to take account of you and your belongings through a two-step process. First, “immigration” requires you to present identification and answer questions to verify that you are who you claim. Second, “customs” requires you to present a full account of your physical possessions to determine their legality and taxes you may owe on them.
This course will walk you through the topics of customs and immigration from the perspective of a United States citizen traveling abroad and subsequently returning home. First, the general customs and immigration procedures a traveler might encounter abroad are described (such as landing cards and passport control). Then, the specific customs and immigration procedures of the United States are provided in much greater detail (such as personal exemptions, prohibited items and U.S. Customs and Border Patrol Trusted Traveler Programs).
No prior travel knowledge is required!
