Custom clearance is an important part of a product shipment. The release of a shipment can take from 20 minutes to as long as several days in Canada.  Once the Customs broker completes entry for customs and transmits the data, it takes about 20 minutes for the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) to receive it.

When the CBSA receives the necessary documents, it is now up to an officer to review the entry and either accept or reject the shipment.  There is a possibility that the shipment is held for inspection. If the shipment is inspected, it is sent to a bonded warehouse where it is inspected by a Customs officer. This step can take 12-48 hours. Custom releases are also not guaranteed. There are a number of factors that influence the rejects of a shipment.

  • Temporary rejects: these rejects can happen when information keyed into the entry of a shipment does not match with its paperwork. Under these circumstances, the broker is notified and a change to the entry is made.
  • Permanent rejects:  A mis-declaration, undervaluing your goods, or simply for health and safety reasons clearance of a shipment can be cancelled in Canada.
