Japan Customs

Customs performs a wide range of roles which may be classified into five categories: taxation, Customs clearance, surveillance and control, supervision of Hozei areas and compilation of trade statistics.

Goods imported into Japan are generally subject to Customs duties and other taxes such as consumption tax. Customs collect those duties and taxes.

Customs Clearance
Under the Customs Law, any person who is to export or import goods must submit a declaration to the Director-General of Customs. Customs checks the legitimacy of the export and/or import declarations and examines the goods, if required.

Surveillance and Control
Customs enforcement activities are conducted 24 hours a day to prevent and intercept the smuggling of illicit drugs, firearms, and other contraband. To strengthen enforcement activities at national borders effectively and efficiently, Customs cooperates closely with relevant authorities, such as international agencies and foreign Customs.

Supervision of Hozei Areas
Customs supervises Hozei areas, such as Hozei warehouses and Hozei manufacturing warehouses, in which the collection of Customs duty, consumption tax, and so on is temporarily suspended.

Compilation of Trade Statistics
Customs compiles trade statistics and discloses them in accordance with the Customs Law and the provisions of the International Convention on Economic Statistics.

In Japan, the Customs Law is the basic law for Customs administration.
