What is Entry Type 86?

Entry Type 86 is a voluntary entry type for the filing and electronic release of eCommerce shipments that qualify under CBP’s de minimis (less than $800) also known as Section 321 shipments.

Shipments eligible for Entry Type 86 will not be subject to duties and taxes. It can be used by any mode of transport and includes use for release if there are PGA (Participating Government Agencies) requirements.
