To import dutiable shipments into the U.S., typically a waybill and Commercial Invoice is required.
A waybill accompanies every shipment and includes all the information DHL needs to know to keep your package moving.
A Commercial Invoice is obtained by the seller and shows the value and description of the merchandise. These are required for most imports into the United States.
Additional documents may be necessary to determine if the merchandise will be approved for entry into the United States.
Good to Know
DHL Import Express Online gives DHL account holders the option of allowing either the exporter or importer to prepare shipment documentation.
