How to send Prescription Drugs/Medicines to the USA

1.) Browse to US FDA Orange Book to check if your prescription drug is approved (You can import non FDA approved drugs into the US)

2.) You need to have a prescription signed by your doctor, and stamped from the hospital (Or your doctors clinic or professional est.)

3.) You will also need a commercial invoice for your drug from either the hospital or pharmacy (Even if you got it for free from a gov. hospital)

4.) Notation should be placed on the outside of the parcel stating “Doctors Letter Attached”

All set? Great now you can call any of the carriers you deal with.


Fedex:+965 1 802.233

DHL: +965 1 808.345

I had to figure this out recently and none of the local carriers could provide me with accurate information on how to get this done, so I figured id share this with you.
