A penalty imposed on imported goods that are not promptly cleared through customs.

General Order

A situation in which imports do not clear customs within 15 days of arriving to the country. Generally, goods are placed under a general order if they are missing needed documentation or if the owner does not claim them. The owner still carries the risk of damage to the goods, and it is the owner's responsibility to rectify the situation. If goods remain under general order for more than six months, the government either confiscates or auctions them.
