Declaration without the intervention of a shipping agent/ship broker

The passengers and crew of vessels can declare liquid assets without the intervention of a shipping agent/ship broker (Please use the Cash declaration form). The declaration is filed by submitting the declaration form for liquid assets to a declaration point.

Declaration with the intervention of a shipping agent/ship broker

The passengers and crew of vessels can declare liquid assets through the intervention of a shipping agent (Please use the Cash declaration form). A shipping agent can also file the declaration himself if (on the instructions of the captain) he takes liquid assets on board or ashore.

The shipping agent emails or faxes the declaration form for liquid assets to the declaration point before the liquid assets are taken on board or leave the vessel. If the shipping agent files the declaration himself, he can do so in the company name. The person actually taking the liquid assets on board or ashore must be able to demonstrate in the event of an audit that he is acting on the instructions of the shipping agent.
