When you visit USPS.com, it gives several options to choose from when supplying package information to the site for proper mailing (‘Enter Customs Information’). Let us clarify a couple of key elements:
- Proof of Filing Citation (PFC): notification confirming that you filed to the Automated Export System (AES). This is also known as the Internal Transaction Number or ITN.
- AES Exemption : If you are not required to file, this note indicates why you are exempt from filing.
Choosing the Appropriate Exemption
- 30.36: Use for shipments destined to Canada that do not require a license, regardless of value.
- 30.37(a): Use for shipments under $2,500 destined to countries other than Canada that do not require a license.
If you’re still unsure, give us a call at 800-549-0595, option 3 to speak with a specialist.
