Customs General Management


Explanation:
La Dirección General de una entidad es el Departamento Administrativo, la Administración, el nombre de la misma varía según el país (Administración General, Gerencia General), pero las funciones son las mismas.

Customs Department es el Departamento de Aduanas, sin especificar la división administrativa del mismo, por lo tanto la definición estaría incompleta.

Customs Bureau


Explanation:
"Dirección" can be translated in different way, but usually works best as "Service" (Dirección General Impositiva = Internal Revenue Service in the USA) or as Bureau.

In this case, the term that is most famliar to my ear is Customs Bureau, and you can verify that this is a common usage by entering that phrase in a search engine.

Best of luck in resolving this!
