bill of sight



Documented request (on a prescribed form) by an importer to custom authorities for permission to examine the shipment that has arrived, without a full set of documents or without full particulars. The importer's objective is to be able to submit a 'perfect' bill of entry after ascertaining the nature, ownership, and estimated value of the shipment.
