The most common question we get from our Korean-based customers is how to build a Korean handicraft company.
And, if you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Koreans can do a lot of things that are impossible to achieve in the West.
They can make a Korean version of a traditional handicraft (kimchi), they can build a K-Pop-style hip-hop studio, they can sell Korean-style furniture and shoes, they have a unique craft-to-consumer shopping experience, and they can even sell their own clothes.
However, Korean-made products are a very niche market and if you want to build an international business, you’ll have to find a way to get your products in the market.
And so, there are several ways to get Korean products into the West—for starters, you could import them into the U.S. via the Korean Industrial Base, or KIB.
That is, Korean products are shipped directly from Korea to the U., via the country’s international airport, and then brought to the West via the KIB and customs.
But this process can be a bit time consuming, costly, and slow.
Here are the basics of how to import a Korean product from Korea.
What you need to know about the Kib and customs When you arrive in the U, the first thing you should do is verify that the products you’re importing are from Korea—there are many customs offices in the US and other countries that will be able to help you check the products.
After that, you’re all set to start importing Korean products.
How do you get KIB to import your goods?
KIBs are the main point of entry for most Korean imports into the US.
This means that if you go to the US Customs Office, you can check the status of your imported products—that is, whether or not they’re subject to KIB inspection.
KIB inspectors are there to check that your goods are in compliance with the laws of the country where you’re doing business.
If they’re not, you may have to wait until the next inspection to see if your products are compliant.
After you’re in the Customs Office to check your products, they’ll tell you whether or that your products will be subject to inspection again.
You can also visit your nearest KIB, which is called the Customs Processing Station (CPPS).
This is a large warehouse that houses the products that you’ll need to import, and it’s located in the same building as the Customs processing station.
After your items are processed, the customs officer will take your products to a Customs Processing Unit (CPU).
The CPU will then hand them over to the Kinshasa Customs Office for inspection.
Once they get your imported goods inspected, they will either pass your products along to the Korean Customs Inspection Office, or they will hand them back to the Customs Department.
If the KICs customs office has the goods that you’re looking for, they also process them for you.
If your products do not meet the requirements of the KBI, they won’t let you import them.
If you have problems with the products they’re handling, they may refuse to help.
How long does it take to get a product approved?
You’ll need two or three weeks to complete your customs process.
After getting your goods inspected and passed through Customs, the KIBOs customs officials will then send them to a Kinsha Customs Office.
The KIC will then process the goods and then pass them to the KPI.
KPIs customs office will then forward the goods to the KRIS.
If KPIs office doesn’t have the goods you’re interested in, you will have to go to your nearest KRIS Customs Office and make your own arrangements.
What if I don’t want to go through Customs?
The most important thing to remember when importing products into Korea is that you can’t export your goods to other countries.
You’ll have the same customs rules that apply to your product when it leaves the K-pop studio.
However—as you might imagine—KIM is a bit more lenient.
The most straightforward way to export your product to the outside world is to make a customs return.
This is where you’ll send the goods back to your home country, and the Customs officers will review your goods for any discrepancies.
If customs returns are unsuccessful, you won’t be able export your products back to Korea.
If that’s the case, you might want to try using another form of export: import.
That means that you would make your goods and deliver them to your friends or relatives.
Once the goods arrive, they’d be inspected and then shipped to the person you intended to export them to.
The customs officers would then send the product back to you—again, the same procedures apply to import. How to
