Prohibition on Sending Perfumery Products, Lighters and Lithium Batteries by Air Mail and Notes for Completion of Details of Mail Contents on Customs Declaration Form

Recently, there is an emerging concern on perfumery products, lighters and lithium batteries sent through the postal channel. Besides, more cases involving failure to provide truthful or detailed description of mail contents on the customs declaration form have been found. In the circumstances, non-compliance with relevant requirements will lead to delay or return of mail. The senders will in some cases be liable to prosecution. Senders should therefore note the following:

(1) In accordance with the requirements of Universal Postal Union, International Civil Aviation Organization and International Air Transport Association, all dangerous articles such as perfumery products, lighters and lithium batteries are not admissible for posting by air mail (including Speedpost).

(2) Senders must provide a detailed and truthful description (i.e. details, quantity and weight or volume, etc.) of mail contents on the customs declaration form. Generic terms such as food, sample, cosmetics, electronic accessories and toy accessories are not acceptable. For cosmetics and liquids, the specific name and quantity/volume should be stated in detail, e.g. lipstick 1 no., eyeliner 1 no., foundation cream 1 no., skin toner 100 ml, shampoo 100 ml, etc.

What about the phones and tablets. Are they considered as lithium battery products and can only be sent via CP?

Dunno if that will work, since the whole USPS banning lithium on overseas orders deal.
