New regulations in effect regarding international mail shipments
The U.S. Postal Service has mandated a change in international mail processing that all international packages requiring a customs form must have one completed electronically (online).
The two forms, 2976 and 2976-A, can be found on the U.S. Postal Service website.
The 2976 is used for a variety of flat-rate boxes and services (outlined on USPS website), for items with a declared value under $400, and for packages weighing less than 4 pounds.
The 2976-A is used for a variety of services outlined on the USPS website, for items with a declared value over $400 or weighing more than 4 lbs or for priority parcels that are not flat-rate.
When preparing a foreign mailing, contact Mail Services at 545-2488 for assistance in choosing the correct form or with preparing the forms.
Mail Services, located in 306 Goodell, has a walk-up kiosk available that allows users to prepare a customs form on-site.
