Customs
Organisation information
Intentions

To regulate the importation and exportation of goods in a country

"I'm on holiday in France at the moment and I didn't know how I was going to send [your present] to you — what if they'd opened it at customs? — but then Hedwig turned up!"
—Hermione Granger voices her concerns about sending Harry his birthday present.[src]

Customs is a government agency that regulates the flow of goods in and out of a country, as well as occasionally other related services such as taxation and border patrolling. When Hermione Granger ordered a Broomstick Servicing Kit for Harry Potter's thirteenth birthday, she was concerned of how to send it to him, as she feared it would be opened at customs if she sent it via traditional Muggle channels, such as Muggle Mail.
