Observations  

  1. First-Class Mail International items may not contain dutiable articles.
  2. Each shipment valued at U.S. $200 or over must be accompanied by a consular invoice if there is a Peruvian consulate located at the place of mailing. If there is none, a commercial invoice must be furnished instead. The commercial invoice must be legalized by a Peruvian consulate or countersigned by a chamber of commerce, or if neither is available, it may bear the notarized signatures of two well-known local merchants. If the value is under U.S. $200, a commercial invoice must be furnished but need not be legalized. The consular or commercial invoice may be either enclosed in the parcel or sent separately to the addressee so as to arrive before the parcel, but the legalization must not be dated later than the day of mailing.
  3. Peruvian consuls are located in principal cities of the United States.
  4. Gifts addressed to persons native to the country do not require a commercial invoice unless the value of such gifts exceeds U.S. $450 per calendar year.
  5. Many items are prohibited import into Peru. Therefore, senders should ascertain from the addressee before mailing whether the item may be received or not.
  6. Used clothing must be accompanied by an appropriate health inspection certificate.
  7.
