Once you have completed the registration process, go to the baggage claim area and collect your luggage. Do not leave it unattended. Afterwards, you will take all of your belongings through Customs Inspection where you will be required to declare goods subject to Customs Duty.
If you are not eligible for the Customs Grant (e.g. you are an immigrant from North America, South Africa, or Western Europe)
you are in most cases eligible for exemptions on Customs duties on household appliances. If you have brought with you electrical appliances valued at more than $200 you must declare the items and show your te’udat oleh with the exemption listed. In such an event you will be requested to go to the Customs Warehouse in order to release your shipment.
If you are eligible for the Customs Grant and have brought with you household appliances that are valued at more than $75.00, and that are not exempt from Customs duties, you must go through the “red lane,” declare the items, and pay the necessary duties.
If you have nothing to declare, you may go through the “green lane.”
Note: The Customs Warehouse is open on Sundays-Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. to 17:00 p.m. If you arrive after working hours, you will have to return the next day.
