Hints and Helps for Foreign Packaging Success


Many thousands of parcels come into the country everyday. A good percentage of them do not have any problems getting through. However, some get inspected due to the fact that they might fit the "suspicious package" description. Poor packaging and envelopes in which you can feel the contents are obvious. Packages that rattle, meaning rattling like pills in a plastic bottle will get checked. A package that is leaking a liquid substance due to the fact that the source did not pack or cushion the ampoules properly will get checked. But there are small things that you can do to increase the probability of getting your package through customs without being checked. For example, have the source/shipper write on the outside of the package, "Happy Birthday or Anniversary or Graduation!". Or "Pictures inside: Do not bend or fold!" Try "American Goods Returned". Use your imagination. Try to quell the curiosity of the Customs agents so they will let the package through unchecked.

Another fine idea that has worked is to send your source some extra money. He can buy a cake mix that is indigenous to his/her country and comes in a box. (Sort of like Duncan Hines or Betty Crocker). Have him carefully open the box, and the wax paper bag, stuff your pills or ampoules in the cake mix. Reseal the bag and box using a heavy duty glue. If the package is inspected, the customs agent will find a cake mix that is sealed in the box. So when you receive the package, you have your gear and a tasty desert. Make sure you take the gear out of the cake mix before you bake the cake!!

Tell your source that you prefer that he/she ships your package using standard air-mail. It is slower than express or a private carrier, but it is safer. Customs must have reason to stop or search first class mail, but may stop and search all second, third, and fourth class mail, international parcel post, and cargo (courier) Different countries have different protocols, but this seems to be the general rule for most.

Sealed first class mail first passes through U.S. Customs, where it may be passed, detained or seized either directly by Customs, or turned over to another U.S. Agency such as the DEA, FDA or the Postal Inspection Service. To initiate such an action, U.S. Customs must have cause, meaning that the package must fit the "suspicious package profile", alert a dog or electronic scanning device, bear the return address of an embargoed company, or otherwise provide a tangible reason to suspect that the package might contain contraband or merchandise for which duty has not been paid.

The codes pertaining to all other forms of mail are less stringent. Parcels from private couriers, such as UPS, FedEx, Emory and others, are subject to random inspections by U.S. Custom officials at any time.

If a package is inspected, Customs will check the name and address with vehicle registry, the local utilities supplier, and criminal records to see if the person's name and address coincide. For this reason, never use your own name! If and when they check to see if your name and address match (they hardly ever do this) they will deliver the package and use some sort of surveillance to try and bust you. If the package goes through Customs without inspection or detainment's, the postal service doesn't care who's name is on the package. Their job is to deliver it to the address on the package.
