When you send an international shipment, customs forms are a requirement. Every country's border control agency uses customs forms to help protect their borders and to assign duty fees and tariffs on incoming goods. The recipient of the good(s) typically pays for any duty fees.
Partners of USPS, including ShippingEasy, will automatically select the correct USPS customs form based on your selection of service and packaging. Learn more about ShippingEasy plans and features.
Once printed, attach the forms to the parcel or place them in an enclosed pouch and attach that to the outside of the box.
Some shipments will only require 1 copy of the customs form
Regardless of the form type, some shipments will only require 1 copy of the customs form (combined into your shipping label).
These shipments include:
When you ship First Class International Mail to any destination, or ship Priority Mail International to Military Mail and U.S. Territories, the total value of the shipment cannot be more than $400.
If your total value is over $400, you will see this alert on the READY TO SHIP page.
