Your questions answered
- Providing the correct details and documents is key.
- Information should be provided in English.
- Regulated goods (such as drugs, food, biological substances and medical devices) are subject to additional governmental control.
- Adding your receiver’s phone number and email address to the invoice and packing list will avoid clearance delays if your carrier has any questions.
- Keep an eye on U.S. regulations and check them before shipping to ensure you’re up to date.
Before shipping to the U.S., you will need to complete a commercial invoice and an air waybill. If you’re sending regulated goods (alcohol, medical devices, or electronics, for example) then you and your receiver may need to provide extra documents. Each shipment’s required customs documents differ based on origin, destination and the commodity being shipped.
