  1. BTW . . . UPS has subsequently sent an email request for me to send them a scanned copy of every page in may passport along with a detailed listing of all of the items sent from America with proof of purchase, brand names, and pictures, among others. No one at the UPS office in the U.S. said anything about the necessity for all this! It reminds me of all I had to go through to ship my household goods to the country as LCL container cargo! I cannot believe I have to do this to merely get a small package of gifts. I can understand having to pay duties on a few items. But, UPS has gi
  2. I ended up going down to the Customs office at my local airport yesterday. UPS sent me their PP 20 and I used the information from that form to sign a document (many, actually) which gives UPS permission to act on my behalf as my broker in Bangkok--where my package sits.

Like you said, is this form not exclusively used for companies registered in Thailand with the Thai Dept. of Revenue--foreign or o
  4. I have run into a similar situation. My folks sent me a package from the U.S. and used UPS instead of USPS (the normal U.S. mail system). Now, my package is sitting in the BKK airport and has to be released by Thai Customs. UPS emailed me and said I can go to the customs at my local airport station, show them all the appropriate documentation (passport, visa, etc) and give them permission to allow UPS to be my broker. But, I have to take the PorPor 20 (ภ.พ.20 -- VAT Registration Certificate) form with me to get them to release it to UPS and I cannot find this document available anywhere on l
