Just in case they do check, here is the USPS's list of individual countries and their restrictions and prohibitions. It seems like if you fill out the proper paperwork and make sure it is very detailed and honest, you will have minimal issues. I might ask the postmaster for help, too.

Size Restrictions
Hazardous Materials

USPS Customs Forms
I tried out the online customs form thing, here's what you have to do:



Just include a detailed description of each thing, and list it as 'gifts'. Seems easy enough. This is going to be expensive, though! It looks like about $30-$60 just to post mine. Oh well, it's what I signed up for, I guess.

Can't say that this applies to non-US people, but I thought it might help.

Well customs can be weird, apparently you are not allowed to send dolls from US to Italy, but I've bought dolls from the States on eBay... Not in defiance of the rules, I just didn't know at the time :-s

FYI - Shipping to the US


http://auspost.com.au/apps/international-post-guide.html

Import restrictions
Senders should determine import restrictions from United States of America authorities before posting:

•Alcoholic beverages
•Animals and animal products
•Firearms
•Foodstuffs
•Goods originating from Cuba, Iran, Myanmar, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria
•Hides
•Knives
•Pharmaceutical products
•Registered articles
•Skins
•Tobacco and tobacco products
•Vegetable and other plant products
•Weapons
•Wool.
USA admits duty-free genuine personal gifts not exceeding $US 25 value (excluding tobacco products and perfume).

Special documentation
Senders should provide a Certificate of Origin, whenever possible.

As a result of new regulations issued by the Food and Drug Administration under the Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act of 2002, all shipments of articles of food to the United States must be preceded by a prior notice of shipment. This applies to articles shipped for commercial purposes or as gifts.

Articles of food include (but are not limited to): food for humans or animals, dietary supplements, nutritional supplements, vitamins, food and colour additives.

Articles of food which are non-commercially prepared by an individual in his own residence and sent to another individual as a (non-commercial) gift are exempt from submission of this prior notice. This prior notice may be submitted and a prior notice conformation number obtained via access.fda.gov/index.html#prior.

Mail shipments containing food articles for which a prior notice conformation number has not been entered on the customs declaration may be returned to the sender or (if no return address is included) destroyed.

Should you require information on what must be submitted with a prior notice, consult the Food and Drug Administration.

Prohibitions
In addition to items prohibited by Dangerous and Prohibited Goods & Packaging Post Guide and ECI and EPI - Parcels Regulations, United States of America prohibits:

•Alcoholic beverages
•Animals and animal products
•Animal or vegetable fats/oils
•Arms and ammunition
•Cereals
•Coffee and tea
•Chain letters
•Cork and articles of cork
•Dairy produce, birds’ eggs; natural honey
•Fruit, nuts and citrus peel
•Fertilizers
•Furs
•Inorganic and organic chemicals
•Lottery tickets or related advertising
•Lac, gums and resins
•Mineral fuels and oils
•Measuring, medical or surgical instruments
•Meat and fish products
•Optical, photographic, cinematographic products
•Printed books, newspapers, pictures- offensive by nature
•Pharmaceutical products
•Preparations of meat, fish or crustaceans
•Tobacco and tobacco products
•Vegetables and vegetable products
•Wool, animal hair
•Wood and articles of wood
•Wine
•Wheat products.
Transporting food of any kind is prohibited under ECI Platinum

So we have to give prior notice, to ship it

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

I know what I'm making!!!!  I think I may go on another little shopping spree tomorrow to get some last minute things, find a big enough box and start packing.  I' should be able to start my craft this weekend too!!!  WOW!!  I think this will be the earliest I have ever sent!!!  No worries KimmyLynn, I'm not sending that soon, but probably next week!!
