With all the turmoil in Venezuela, many of our customers are wondering if they can still ship into the country. Officially, shipping into Venezuela has not changed. However, customs clearance is taking significantly longer than usual.  Also, the number of goods that Venezuela customs will not allow into the country has grown.  Below you will find a list of prohibited items.  If your item is not on the list, you may still want to check with our International Help Desk at (800) 827-7987 as the list can change with little notice.
