Packing a balikbayan box? Leave these items out

MANILA - The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) has released an advisory to give the public tips on shipping balikbayan boxes.

Based on their records, most of the complaints on balikbayan boxes involve non-delivery, loss, pilfered and damaged boxes. Most of the balikbayan boxes come from Saudi Arabia, UAE, Europe, USA and Singapore.

Trade and Industry Undersecretary Vic Dimagiba said balikbayans can check the list of foreign freight forwarders and Department of Trade and Industry (DTI)-accredited Philippine counterparts in the DTI website.

He warns those who will be sending balikbayan boxes to be wary of exceptionally very low rates and persons posing as representatives of freight forwarding companies.

DTI advises the public to secure shipping documents and get the name and contact details of the consolidators Philippine counterpart agent.

According to the DTI, the following items are not allowed to be sent through balikbayan boxes...


Currencies
Checks
Money orders and travellers checks
Jewelry
Firearms, ammunitions and explosives
Prohibited drugs and other substances
Pornographic materials
Gambling cards
Toy guns
Pirated products
Items of commercial quantity
Plant seeds and plant materials
Food not contained in cans, sealed packages or in bottles.

DTI also said that all contents of the balikbayan box should be declared.

Complainants should file written complaints together with supporting documents through e-mail at fate@dti.gov.ph or call DTI direct (02)751-3330 or 09178343330.

Latest news is pumayag na si Sara na tumakbo ang tatay. She posted something on twitter saka kaya din sya nagpakalbo to convince his father more na nag-urge na rin sa ibang politicians from Davao na gayahin ang ginawa ni Sara. Pero we'll see pa rin kung tatakbo sya.
