Especially for Packages coming from the United StatesPlease do not write what is in the packages you send, nor the value of the items. We often get charged exactly what you put on the form.
We have a sad story. Yesterday a missionary received a package. On the customs form it said camera $40. They charged us $40 to get it out of customs, and when the package was opened by the missionary, there was a rock in place of the camera.
Recommendations:We recommend writing “Missionary Supplies.” Obviously, don’t send anything that you are not willing to lose. Don’t use USPS tape or packaging. Smaller packages come through easier and faster. We are asking that you limit the number of packages you send to very few (0-3) per year.
