International shipments being sent from the U.S. are subject to federal export laws and regulations that may require approval for, or otherwise restrict, what can be sent to certain countries, individuals, and entities. While customers are responsible for complying with these laws, the Postal Service™ is implementing policy changes to help ensure that international mail can be delivered in a safe and timely manner.
Effective May 21, 2012, all international mail pieces bearing a PS Form 2976-A or PS Form 2976 customs declaration that was not completed and submitted online (e.g., using Click-N-Ship®, Click-N-Ship for Business®, an authorized PC Postage® vendor, or the USPS Web Tools® system) will ONLY be accepted at a retail service counter at a Post Office. In addition, all international mail pieces that require a customs declaration and bear postage stamps will ONLY be accepted at a retail service counter at a Post Office.
International mail pieces bearing a customs declaration that was completed and submitted online may be processed as usual provided those mail pieces are paid by electronic means or contain a meter strip.
