Shipping to Canada from US [Nov. 13th, 2012|12:37 pm]
Previous Entry Add to Memories Share Next Entry


I'm sending a small box from the US to a friend in Canada. The content is primarily souvenir-based items EXCEPT for a 3.5 oz bag of packaged candy. Is it okay for me to send a small bag of packaged candy through the mail to Canada or should I just not send it?

I don't want the recipient to be charged with any kind of tax because of it.

should be fine, but just make sure your Canadian friend doesn't try to mail you any Kinder Surprise, or he/she might get in trouble! :P

It will be fine. The only things that really can't go across the border are meats and vegetables, because those can be contaminated/bring diseases into the country.

And of course, anything that's illegal in the country you're sending it to.
