I don't know what the current snafus are. I can say that historically the green and yellow sticker with one's permit number was sufficient to get any shipments through customs, inspection and sent to one's address because your sticker number is keyed to you and your address. I would think that emailing or calling the permit issuing office would clarify this matter. BUT, there are probably all too many clerks who are impressed with their own importance guarding our borders and confused by the proliferation of unnecessary regulations who, when they are confronted with something they don't understand think they have to ask for additional postage. It may be true. Historically,the green-and-yellow sticker was sufficient to get the package through to one's address WITHOUT additional postage. The sticker still notes that it ensures "proper delivery". (I've had a permit off and on for more than 60 years.) nor were we newly advised that such postage would be required when we got our permits together with the instructions. Since those pages were pretty thorough, I suspect that the inspections offices haven't been informed . I am writing Carolyn F. Fitzgerald at the USDA for clarification. Dear Carolyn. F. Fitzgerald. The above MAY be self-explanatory. If it is not-- the question is whether or not any additional postage is required to get a package or envelope sent from the inspection station to the permit holder's address. Please clarify to us and let the inspection stations know? Sincerely, Adam Fikso, Ph.D.
