The United States Postal Service (USPS) is implementing a new online-only customs form for mailing overseas packages that will soon replace the handwritten form customers are currently using. The new customs form allows faster processing at the Postal Finance Counter and mitigates addressing mistakes through verification by USPS. Customers can continue to use the older forms, but are encouraged to start using the new forms now. The new online form is available on the USPS website. Customers will enter all information about the package being mailed online and then print out the form to bring with them to the mailroom. Service members are encouraged to use the new system as they prepare to mail packages for the holidays.
