How to Prepare Your International Mail

International Sheet

All mail being sent internationally should be accompanied by a completed "Metered Mail Authorization Form" and must be kept separate from all other mail. International mail that is not kept separate from mail traveling to U.S. destinations could result in having that mail be processed in the wrong classification and will most likely receive incorrect postage.

All international parcels should be accompanied by a completed and signed customs form (PS form 2976 or PS form 2976A).

These forms can be obtained at any United States Post Office, or from University Mail Service. When addressing your mail piece, the last line of the address should contain only the name of the destination country spelled in English, all capital letters with no abbreviation. Contact University Mail Service if you have any questions on how to prepare your outgoing international mail.
