US Customs Declaration – are adult children considered family?
I am a young professional who will be traveling overseas with my parents. Upon return to the US, in case we use only forms (no kiosks), would we be able to submit a joint declaration? We are immediate family but do not all live in the same household.
In case I do need to fill out a separate declaration, am I considered to be traveling alone, or traveling with family?
If you are an adult, and you don’t live in the same household, I would think you’d need to fill out your own form.
Maybe someone else has experience?
You can all use one CBP form. Just keep an empty form in hand. If the officer asks, fill that and present. Usually they are friendly and you should not be worried about them.
