Print this letter on your organization's official letterhead, and have it signed and witnessed by your organization's leadership. Place a copy of this letter INSIDE each piece of luggage containing ANY donated goods or mission trip supplies (extra gloves, soap and hand sanitizer, VBS supplies, etc.). Each trip participant should also carry a copy of the letter in their carry-on bag in the event that the letter cannot be easily located within the luggage. In rare instances, customs officials have asked for this documentation when a bag has been selected for search. Without this letter, goods may be confiscated by customs officials, or you could be required to pay customs tax on the estimated value of the goods.
