United States (CTUS) and addressed for delivery point within CTUS is subject to customs examination by U.S. and Japanese Customs officials at FMC Yokohama per references (a) and (b). (2)  Merchandise  mailed  to  the  U.S.  for  which  “entry-free  of  customs  duty”  is  not specifically provided is subject to customs duty. c.  Customs Declarations (1) Mailers must use either customs declaration form, PS Form 2976 or PS Form 2976-A, depending on the destination of the article being mailed and provided the form is completed properly and lists and describes the entire contents.  The class of mail does not determine the customs form to be used.  However, a PS Form 2976-A must be used if the article is going to CONUS.  This satisfies the  memorandum  agreement  between  the  Federal  Aviation  Administration  (FAA)  and  the Department of Defense (DoD) concerning the security of mail. A PS Form 2976 may be used when a PS Form 2976-A is enclosed within the article should be used on parcels too small to accommodate a PS Form 2976-A. (2) Customs forms are not required on official mail except as required by Part 144.1, International Mail Manual (IMM). (3) All mail, originating outside the customs territory of the United States (i.e., outside the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico) is subject to customs examination, except letter mail known or believed to contain only correspondence or documents.  Assessment of customs duty is outside the control of the USPS; therefore, postal clerks can not and will not inform any customers whether any items either gifts or commercial shipments will be subject to customs duty.  However, postal clerks do suggest that the customers inform the addressee before they mail so that the latter may determine whether those items are dutiable.  Questions, complaints, concerns can be addressed to the nearest U.S. customs office listed in the IMM 711.62. d.  Customs Interdiction Measures.   The following procedures are set forth to facilitate the interception of contraband materials introduced into overseas military postal channels and to ensure compliance with Navy Postal and Local Customs Regulations: (1) Parcels will be accepted for mailing only from personnel authorized military postal privileges. (2) Parcels must bear the sender’s name and complete return address.  The mailer shall be required to present their Armed Forces identification card at the time of mailing. (3) Japanese customs occupy an area at FMC Yokohama to monitor and inspect incoming U.S. mail by use of an X-Ray machine and/or Narcotic/Explosive working dogs. The mail inspected will be stamped with the official customs office stamp and all contraband items confiscated and the addressee notified. (4) U.S. military working dogs with handler will provide random search of incoming mail to detect the mailing of narcotics and explosives. e.   U.S. Merchandise.   Articles that are grown, produced, or manufactured in the U.S., after having been exported, not advanced in value or improved in condition, may be mailed back to the U.S. free of customs duty.  However, a properly completed customs declaration form shall be attached to the address side of the parcel with the words “Returned U.S. Merchandise” written on the customs form. f.  Personal and Household Effects (PCS Movement Orders) (1)  Personal and household effects of individuals returning to the U.S. under government orders duty free will be accepted for mailing provided: (a) The parcel does not exceed 108 inches length and girth combined and does not weigh over 70 pounds in weight.
