PS Form 2976-A, Customs Declaration and Dispatch Note - also known as USPS Form 2976-A - is a form used by the United States Postal Service (USPS) as a summary of package contents and their value. This information is necessary for the destination country to examine mail and allow its entry without having to open the parcel and inspect each item one-by-one.
The latest version of this customs declaration was released by the USPS in July 2013 with the previous edition dated September 2012 still valid. A printable PS Form 2976-A is available for reference below or can be found through the USPS forms website.
The PS Form 2967-A is necessary for all Priority Mail International shipments, except packages, destined to military mail within the U.S. Territories. A customs form is not necessary if the package contains only non-negotiable documents or correspondence, weighs under 16 ounces and is being sent with First-Class Mail International service.
The PS Form 2976-A should not be confused with the PS Form 2976-R, USPS Customs Declaration and Dispatch Note. The difference between USPS Form 2976-A and 2976-r is that the USPS 2976-R is never used as a stand-alone customs form. This form is used as a worksheet that retail associates provide with their package and is available only as a hard copy. It serves as a basis for generating the appropriate customs form.
