Leaving in less than 2 weeks. Starting to pack for Cancun Mexico.
Can someone help me with what the requirements are?
Items that I will be bringing other then clothing and my essential regular vacation stuff include:
artificial flowers! four bouquests, 5 centrepiece arrangements and boutineers. - should I have my florist make up a receipt for less than three hundred dollars?
Other items include: small starfish, photo frames, small things for OOT bags (dollar store stuff), Koozies, OOT bags, hmmm cant think of anything else. I don't have receipt for dollar store stuff. Can I make up receipts? OR just have a document outliming whats in the bag and how much it costs? or are real receipts needed?
Oh gosh, sorry I have missed this post. In case you have not left home yet...don't panic! The only thing you need to claim is items you are NOT taking back home again. In this case the items in your OOT bags you are giving to friends and family. I am assuming the flowers you and taking back home again, so you do not need to claim these. They may ask at customs what they are, and you would simply tell them it's wedding decor.
I am not sure how to explain properly, but here goes: You have to claim items entering Mexico that will be given as gifts or remain in Mexico. Personal items (including your dress, decor, etc) that you bring with you and take home do not need to be claimed.
From the list you offered I would suggest you would claim the OOT bags, koozies and items going into the OOT bags. If you don't have the receipts don't worry to much, just have a general idea what it's worth. As well, the only time they will ask for this info is if you get red light and have to get your luggage looked at. Otherwise it's green light and go!
