    Admittedly, this may be OBE – Is there an updated citation for this, as I believe I’m not seeing pertinent information under 19 CFR 18.2(a)? Alternatively, I reviewed Subpart B – Immediate Transportation Without Appraisement, § 18.11 & § 18.12, which appear to allow for A through E under 19 CFR 18.12(a). Hoping you can clarify, and thanks in advance!

    8. Question1 point
    The Foxtrot Company arranges with a carrier to file an immediate transportation without appraisement entry for 50,000 recorded compact disks that have been in General Order for over seven months from the date of original importation. Upon arrival at the port of destination, which ONE of the following is allowed?

    A. A transportation and exportation entry may be filed for the shipment in order to have the merchandise exported.
    B. An entry for consumption may be filed for the shipment.
    C. A warehouse entry may be filed for the shipment.
    D. Another immediate transportation without appraisement entry may be filed to move the merchandise to another port.
    E. A privileged foreign merchandise Foreign Trade Zone entry may be filed for the shipment.

    Correct choice is: B
    Explanation: 19 CFR 18.2(a)

    § 18.12 Entry at port of destination.
    (a) Arrival procedures. Merchandise received under an immediate transportation entry at the port of destination may be admitted to a FTZ, entered into a bonded warehouse, entered for consumption, transportation and exportation, immediate exportation, immediate transportation, or any other form of entry, within 15 calendar days from the date of arrival at the port of destination and is subject to all the conditions pertaining to merchandise entered at a port of first arrival.

    However, here the merchandise has been in General Order for over seven months from the date of original importation. All the options A to E are permissible only within 15 calendar days from the date of arrival at the port of destination but that time limit has passed here. Therefore, we need to look at the provisions of §127.2.

    § 127.2 Withdrawal from general order for entry or exportation.
    (a) Exportation within 6 months from date of importation. Merchandise in general order may be exported without examination or appraisement if the merchandise is delivered to the exporting carrier within 6 months from the date of importation. This merchandise may be entered within 6 months from date of importation for immediate transportation to any port of entry designated by the consignee.

    (b) After expiration of 6 months from date of importation. Entry for immediate transportation shall be permitted after the expiration of the 6-month period only for the purpose of filing an entry for consumption at the port of destination.

    In terms of § 127.2(b) since the merchandise has been in General Order for over seven months from the date of original importation, entry for immediate transportation shall be permitted … only for the purpose of filing an entry for consumption at the port of destination.

    Therefore B is the correct answer.
