What is the difference between informal and formal ISF and customs entry?

A Formal entry is for merchandise that exceeds the value of typically $2500. A bond is attached to the formal entry for both formal ISF (type 1) and formal entry. The bond guarantees US Customs payment for any fines, fees or penalties issued for an improper or late ISF & upon entry into the USA the bond guarantees US Customs payment for any fines, fees, penalties & duty owed. An informal ISF is valued at under $2500 and per US Customs rules no bond is necessary. This valuation is carried through to clearance, as a bond is required for entries exceeding the minimum value of $2500 ($250 for textiles).  For more definitive rules on informal entries, please see the following link  www.netbonds.net/informal .
