Re: Customs Clearance of Household Effects

That's not true. You can fill in multiple 18.44s and you can bring several shipments over quite a long period of time (2 or 3 years iirc). You just need to tick "partial import" on the form and give a rough approximation on when the next one will be. Each shipment requires its own 18.44.
Have to correct that slightly:

You can only use ONE 18.44 (and very important to tick the partial importation box) - any subsequent partial imports will depend on that one document. Once the final shipment has been cleared, this procedure/document will be closed.

You have a 2 year span from the date of legal transfer of domicile to complete this procedure. Upon request, customs can (but don't have to) extend this period.

HTH...
