CBP addresses uncertainty about Form 3461



Were you confused about the existence of two versions of US Customs Form 3461 on the CBP website?  Here’s the lowdown:

  • In CSMS #15-000946, CBP added a new version of 3461 for non-ABI (full paper) entries to be processed in ACE since these types of entries required completion of fields different from that of the the traditional 3461.
  • Now, however, pursuant to CSMS #16-000001, Customs has removed the ACE version of the form from CBP.gov for additional modification. CBP will publish a future CSMS when the revised form is re-posted. Filers should continue to use the existing 3461 for their non-ABI filings.
