Addressing Each  parcel  accepted  must  bear  the  name  and address of the mailer and of the addressee.  The names and addresses must be written legibly and correctly on the parcel itself or on a gummed label affixed to the parcel. The address of the mailer and addressee should also  be  written  on  a  separate  piece  of  paper  and enclosed in the parcel. The name of the city or post office and country of address must be written in full, in capital letters.  If a postal  delivery  zone  number  is  known,  it  should  be included.  The country’s name must be the last line of the  address.    Sufficient  space  must  be  left  on  the outside wrapper for stamps, labels, and postal service endorsements. Do not accept parcels when: Addressed to a person in one country “in care of” a person in another country. The name of the mailer or addressee is in initials, unless the initials are the adopted trade name of the mailer or addressee. The addresses are written in pencil. Sealing All international parcels must be sealed.  Senders must seal their own parcels. Wax, gummed-paper tape, nails, screws, wire, metal bands, or other materials can be used to seal parcels.  The seal must be sufficient to allow detection of tampering. TRANSPORTATION OF INTERNATIONAL MAIL All categories and related classes of international mail  are  transported  by  either  AIR  or  SURFACE carrier.   Each  Individual  Country  Listing  shows  the price for both airmail and surface rate under the desired class of mail.

CUSTOMS FORMS AND PROCEDURES FOR INTERNATIONAL MAIL Learning Objective:   Identify the customs declarations used for international mail and procedures to follow when customs duty has been assessed on dutiable articles. Merchandise sent to an international country may be subject to import duties and must have a customs declaration  form  attached.   In  this  section  you  will learn which customs declaration forms to use, and how to complete them.  You will also become familiar with how to process customs duties assessed on items of foreign  origin  mailed  from  overseas  activities  to addresses in the U.S. CUSTOMS DECLARATIONS Only two types of customs declarations (PS Form 2976 and PS Form 2976-A) are used on dutiable postal union and parcel post mail. PS FORM 2976 Each  letter  package  containing  merchandise, printed matter known to be dutiable in the country of address, or small packets (dutiable and nondutiable) must have a Customs Label, PS Form 2976, Customs - CN22 (old C 1) and Sender’s Declaration (green label) (see  figure  6-6)  attached.    PS  Form  2976  must  be completed and placed by the mailer on the address side of each article. There  are  occasions  when  only  the  upper  -  left portion of the PS Form 2976 is placed on the outside of an article.  This is usually when the addressee does not want the contents to appear on the outside of the article or the value of the article is more than $400.   In this case  the  mailer  must  complete  PS  Form  2976-A, Customs  Declaration  and  Dispatch  Note  (see  figure 6-7) and enclose the form inside the parcel. PS FORM 2976-A PS  Form  2976-A  is  used  on  all  parcel  post packages  and  in  conjunction  with  PS  Form  2976  as instructed  in  the  previous  paragraph.    When completing  this  form,  the  mailer  must  describe  in detail  the  contents  of  the  parcel.   Descriptions  of  a general nature are not acceptable.   When completed, PS Form 2976-A should be placed in PS Form 2976-E and attached to the outside of the mailing container. 6-12
