International Mailing

Listed below are the four categories for international mail:

  • Letters:
    • All international letters and flats are shipped via airmail to all countries. Transit times: Five to ten business days, depending on destination.
  • Boxes:
    • Boxes that weigh less than 1lb. go via airmail, just like letters. If a box weighs more than 1 lb., a commercial invoice must accompany the box. (see  Sample Of Commercial Invoice). It is the responsibility of every originating department to provide mail services with a commercial invoice. Transit times: Five to ten business days, depending on destination.
