Observations
1. Argentine customs legislation stipulates that in all cases the addressee must be present to authorize the opening, checking, and customs clearance of packages. To expedite the examination of such packages, the sender should write in a suitable place on the customs Declaration, the phrase “Peutetre Ouvert D’ Office” (May Be Opened Officially), followed by his signature. 2. Each commercial shipment must be accompanied by a consular invoice in duplicate. These invoices must include a declaration signed by the seller or his representative reading: “I declare under oath that all the information given in this invoice is true and the prices indicated are those that actually have been paid (or will have to be paid). I also declare that no arrangements have been made that would make possible any alterations in these prices.” The following articles do not require consular invoices: a. Books, reviews, newspapers, printed papers and scientific and literary periodicals, on condition that no import duty is payable. b. New or used effects or articles imported for noncommercial purposes or not of a saleable nature or value, intended for personal use or consumption and which, by reason of their quantity or type, give no grounds for thinking that they are intended for sale, and which do not exceed the value above which import duty would have to be paid. c. Goods in transit for other countries. d. Samples without saleable value (unused). e. Brochures, posters, printed papers, diaries, almanacs, negatives, photographs, films and other miscellaneous publicity articles advertising foreign goods or concerns, which are marked to prohibit their free sale. f. Spare parts and accessories for supplying or repairing foreign ships or aircraft in Argentina, if these are considered indispensable for continuing the journey. g. Customs, properties and other belongings of visiting theatrical companies. h. Goods returned to Argentina after definitive or temporary export unless a return invoice was explicitly requested when authorization for temporary export was granted. i. Educational equipment or materials intended for schools or scientific research institutes, whether as purchases, gifts, loans or technical or financial aid, on condition that the Argentine Ministry for Foreign Affairs and Religion gives permission beforehand. 3. Used linen and clothing must be accompanied by a certificate of disinfection issued by a competent authority in the country of origin and countersigned by an Argentine consular service. In areas without an Argentine consular service, a disinfection certificate issued by the competent authorities is sufficient. The wrapper must be marked “Disinfection Certificate Enclosed.”

Restrictions
Bees, plants, seeds must be accompanied by a health certificate countersigned by the Argentine Consul.

Observations
1. First-Class Mail International items may not contain dutiable articles. 2. Import licenses are required for many kinds of goods and senders should ascertain from the addressee before mailing that the necessary documents are held. 3. Imports are allowed by mail, including mail order catalog shipments, up to a value of U.S. $500 (U.S. $1000 for computer software) without the requirement of an import license provided the item is not for resale. Shipments valued at no more than U.S. $50 are duty free and are delivered to the addressee; shipments above U.S. $50 can be picked up at the post office upon payment of import duties. Imports that are prohibited or subject to special regulations must comply with applicable Brazilian government provisions. Identical shipments from the same source to the same person or address in Brazil within a 90 day period are considered part of the same shipment and may be subject to confiscation. Other merchandise that usually enters duty free includes items such as newspapers, maps, books, and magazines. 4. Shipments for which an import permit has not been issued are considered contraband and confiscated. 5. Used consumer goods may only be sent to charitable organizations that are recognized by the Brazilian government as being entities which serve the public interest.

Restrictions
Medicines must be accompanied by a prescription from the attendant Brazilian doctor. This prescription should be on a chemist’s form, bearing the name, private address or office of the doctor, his registration number with the Brazil National Medical Council and a Portuguese translation of the instructions, as necessary. Postal packages containing medicaments and not satisfying the above-mentioned conditions will be returned to the senders or, if abandoned, treated as undeliverable items. Postage stamps are admitted only in registered shipments. Saccharine and other artificial sweeteners for artificial beverages require permission from the Brazilian Department of Public Health for importation.
