India and Nepal have an open border with no restrictions on the movement of their citizens. There is a customs checkpoint for the movement of goods and third country nationals.
A new clearing process took effect on November 2, 2009, which automates the clearing process and allows for the pre-clearing of goods. It is strongly recommended to pre-clear the goods to save a potential 4- day delay.
Organisations are able to clear their own goods but it is recommended to use a reputable clearing agent. The clearing of goods takes 2 to 3 days.
