    A customs officer is employed by a government, and is under the guidance of a subdivision within the government.
    For post of officers in customs and excise department need to appear for UPSC (Union Public Service Commission) examination.

    Requirements for becoming a Customs officer are:

    Border protection, excise and VAT assurance officer jobs are at HMRC's Officer grade. You would normally join as an administrative assistant or assistant officer and earn promotion to officer, although HMRC sometimes recruits directly into officer grade.

    Basic Eligibility criteria for custom officer is you must be hold a graduation degree from any recognized university and you must have attained the age of 21 years and must not have attained the age of 30 years.

    Age relaxation is provide only for SC/ST/OBC candidate .For Sc/ST candidate have age relaxation is 5 years and for OBC candidate it is 3 years.

    To join at Officer grade you are likely to need five GCSEs (A-C) including English and maths, plus two A levels or equivalent qualifications. You will usually need two GCSEs (A-C) to join HMRC as an administrative assistant, and five GCSEs (A-C) including maths and English for assistant officer jobs.

    However, if you do not have these qualifications, you may be able to instead take a selection test to prove your skills and abilities in areas like teamwork and communication. Please check entry requirements for each vacancy.

    Details regarding the examination can be found on UPSC website.

    Thanks..
