    FAQ - US Customs Regulations

    What does US Customs Title Validation mean?

    Rules for titled vehicle exports from the United States:

      US Customs must inspect and stamp
      all original titles / ownership documents, prior to export.

    Hand over of originals and inspection of titles
    will normally be handled by the US Customs office nearest to the port/terminal of loading.


      From US Customs Web Site:
      Exporting a Motor Vehicle


      Authentication of documentation

      Where presented


      Careful attention should be paid to 19 CFR 192.2 (d),
      "Where presented."

      Port Directors will establish locations at which exporters must present the required documentation and the vehicles for inspection.

      Port Directors will publicize these locations, including their hours of operation.

      Customs will determine the authenticity of the documents submitted. Once determined, Customs will mark the original documents. In most cases the original document(s) will be returned to the exporter. In those cases where the original title document was presented to and retained by Customs and cannot be found prior to the vehicle's export, the exporter's authenticated copy of the original documentation serves as evidence of compliance with the reporting requirements.
