Caribbean 360 is reporting that the United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency has issued a new customs declaration form “in print and online” that expands the definition of family members for arriving Caribbean and other travelers.

CBP said the definition expands to “members of a family residing in the same household who are related by blood, marriage, domestic relationship, or adoption.”  The agency said it has accepted this family definition since the final rule became effective on January 17. The new form (CBP Form 6059B) provides the expanded definition in the first paragraph.

CBP said the recent regulation change allows more returning US citizens, residents and international visitors to file a joint customs declaration for items acquired abroad.

The new form is designed to streamline the customs process, making it more efficient for families and customs officials.
