U.S. CBP Increases De Minimis Value to $800

On March 10, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced that it has raised the value of a shipment of merchandise imported by one person on one day that can generally be allowed to be imported free of duties and taxes from $200 to $800. 

CBP will publish an Interim Final Rule that amends the appropriate regulations. Please note that CBP reserves the right to require a formal entry on any shipment where they believe it is required.  In addition, the duty and tax free treatment can be denied if it is used for the purpose of avoiding compliance with any law or regulation.
