US Customs

The de minimis value threshold for most goods entering the USA is $800, so goods under this value are likely to enter the United States duty free. This applies whether you are exporting a commercial shipment for re-sale or sending personal effects or gifts. However, unless you’re sending a document, a customs invoice is still required.


Sending food to the USA

Food is a wonderful gift for anyone missing home. You can send most food to the US, including tea bags, jams (Jellies) and preserves, crisps (Potato chips) and other goodies. Importing food products into the United States is governed by the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) and there are some food products which are not allowed to be shipped such as perishable or homemade food.


What you can send:
Non-perishable foods
  • Store bought foods with a best before date over 6 months away.
  • Items must be in the original manufacturers packaging and unopened
Please note
  • The food label needs to list all the ingredients.
  • The best before date must be displayed on the packaging.
What you cannot send:
Perishable foods
  • Foods with a shelf life of less than 6 months
  • Homemade foods or any foods not in the original manufacturers packaging.
  • Foods that can spoil during transit.
  • Food in packaging that has been opened.
  • Food that does not contain a food label listing the ingredients.

Items prohibited from importing into the United States

There are some items which are simply not safe for transportation by air. Additionally, US customs and border protection also has their own list of prohibited items, for example some furs, native American artifacts from Canada and a whole host of other items. Additionally, if you’re sending cosmetics, you should also check the Food & Drug administration (FDA) restricted list.

Top 5 prohibited items
  • Perfume
  • Batteries
  • Aerosols
  • Flammable liquids
  • Animal skins (non‑domesticated)
