Please note, that an above listing is not complete, since US Customs book for Restricted/Dangerous goods is too large and consists of many exceptions.
USA2GEORGIA takes rights not to send certain product to Georgia per International Freight Forwarding rules and requirements.
Also, please note, that despite the above enlisted information, a customs officer still has the right to detain a parcel and demand additional explanations, for example the original invoice for statement of lower price, or some special document allowing you the transportation of the product. Always ask the shop to put an order or an invoice inside the box, and make sure you fill in the declaration form in your account.
 
If you send the prohibited products, we do not take responsibility for its confiscation.
