The pullover features a hood, a V-neckline, long sleeves with ribbed cuffs, a front kangaroo pocket at the waist, and a ribbed bottom. The country of origin is Vietnam.

The jacket features a hood, long sleeves with self-fabric tightened cuffs, a full front opening with a zipper closure, 2 front slant inset pockets at the waist, and a self-fabric tightened bottom. The country of origin is Romania.

Your samples are being returned as requested.

The pullover falls within textile category designation 339. The jacket falls in category 335. Based upon international textile trade agreements category 339 from Vietnam is subject to quota but does not require a visa. Category 335 from Romania is subject to quota and requires a visa.

To obtain the most current information, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the U.S. Customs Service Textile Status Report, an internal issuance of the U.S. Customs Service, which is available at the Customs Web site at www.customs.gov. In addition, the designated textile and apparel categories may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected and should also be verified at the time of shipment.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Mike Crowley at 646-733-3049.
