United States: If you are traveling with guns, you should pre-register each gun taken out of the country. U.S. Customs Form 4457 is the one you will need to fill in, it is a certificate of registration for personal effects taken abroad. You will need to present your firearms for this procedure at any U.S. Customs office, at least one week before your trip.
