Make sure your parcel is okay and that you can send it to America

The first thing you need to do is look at the parcel and see if it’s safe to send it to America. Look at a list of the items you can and cannot send there. Check out the internet, few couriers have a guide to restricted items. For example, if you want to send to America some British candy, well, we’re sorry to inform you that you can’t. To make sure you’re not making a mistake, visit the US postal service, where you can find a specific list of countries and each with their restrictions. 

Look at the tax and at the import rules

Each country has restrictions when it comes to parcels and rules for receiving parcels from abroad. Some may come with extra charges. For clothes, you might not have to pay, but you will not be as lucky every time. So check a list of all these things and see if there are some extra forms to fill.

Also, you’ll need to print 5 copies of the invoice and put them outside the parcel, probably in an envelope.

Wrap your package properly
