NEWS & INFO

United States Custom now requires a Social Security Number for shipments of $2000 U.S. or more.

Dear Customer,

The United States Customs and Border Protection (USCBP) has amended its current reporting requirements for international shipping to a U.S. address for orders that equal or exceed $2000 U.S. in value.

As of October 01, 2004, the USCBP requires that the U.S.-Based Ultimate Consignee or Foreign-Based Ultimate Consignee, or receiver of the goods, provides a U.S. Social Security Number (SSN) or Internal Revenue Service (IRS) employer identification number for any order equal to or exceeding $2000 U.S.


U.S. – Based Ultimate Consignee

Canadian customers who have a residence in the United States but who do not have a U.S. Social Security Number (SSN) or an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) employer identification number, and who wish to ship an order to the U.S., must obtain a CBP-issued Ultimate Consignee identification number.

Foreign-Based Ultimate Consignee
Canadian customers who reside outside the United States and who wish to send a gift to the U.S. must obtain a CBP-issued Ultimate Consignee Identification number.
