Download PDF for this date

The customs authorities ruled today that gifts from the United States to relatives and charity institutions in Poland may be brought in duty-free, the Polish Telegraphic Agency reported.

Exemption from the ordinary tariffs imposed on such articles will depend on the presentation by precipients of poverty certificates. The gifts admitted under this exemption may not be sold or given to others as presents within a period of two years. Only the nearest relatives are excepted from the last-named provision.
