                 Abstract: Travelers who do not have proof of prior possession in
                the United States of foreign made articles and who do not want to be
                assessed duty on these items can register them prior to departing on
                travel. In order to register these articles, the traveler must complete
                CBP Form 4457, Certificate of Registration for Personal Effects Taken
                Abroad, and present it at the port at the time of export for
                examination of the articles of foreign origin and verification of the
                description. After the official has signed the document, it will be
                returned to the applicant for signature, for presentation to CBP upon
                return to United States, and for subsequent reuse. CBP Form 4457 is
                accessible at: https://www.cbp.gov/newsroom/publications/forms?title=4457&=Apply.
                 CBP Form 4455, Certificate of Registration, is used primarily for
                the registration, examination, and supervised lading of commercial
                shipments of articles exported for repair, alteration, or processing,
                which will subsequently be returned to the United States either duty
                free or at a reduced duty rate. The CBP Form 4455 may be required when
                a person, wishing to claim the status of a nonresident upon arrival for
                a short visit to the United States before returning abroad, imports
                articles free of duty under subheadings 9804.00.20, 9804.00.25,
                9804.00.30, 9804.00.35, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States
                (HTSUS) (19 U.S.C. 1202). It may also be used for the replacement of
                articles previously exempted from duty when the unsatisfactory articles
                are exported under the provisions 9804.00.75 and fall under the $800 or
                $1,00 exemption limits. The export and return of theatrical scenery,
                properties, motion-picture films and effects or tools of a trade
                occupation or employment of domestic or foreign origin must also be
                reported on CBP Form 4555. The CBP Form 4455, may also be required in
                any case in which CBP Form 4457 will not adequately serve the purpose
                of registration. CBP Form 4455 must be presented to CBP for examination
                of the articles and verification of the articles' description. After
                the official has signed the document, it will be returned to the
                applicant for signature, for presentation to CBP upon return to United
                States, and for subsequent reuse. CBP Form 4455 is accessible at:
                https://www.cbp.gov/newsroom/publications/forms?title=4455&=Apply.
                 CBP Forms 4457 and 4455 are used to provide a convenient means of
                showing proof of prior possession of a foreign made item taken on a
                trip abroad and later returned to the United States. This registration
                is restricted to articles with serial numbers or other distinctive,
                permanently affixed unique markings, and are valid for reuse as long as

                4457 and CBP Form 4455 are provided for by 19 CFR 10.8, 10.9, 10.68,
                148.1, 148.8, 148.32 and 148.37.
