Key Customs Regulations for Moving to USA:
It is important to be aware that U.S. Customs and Border Protection classifies household effects as furniture, dishes, linens, libraries, artwork and similar household furnishings for your personal use.
In order to avoid paying duty on these items, the articles must have either been available for your use or used in a household where you were a resident for one year, and are not intended for any other person or for sale. The year of use does not need to be continuous, nor does it need to be the year immediately before the date of importation.
Pantry items can be included, but you should be aware there are many restrictions on bringing some food items to the U.S. Almost everything containing meat products is not allowed, including soup mixes, bouillon, and tinned meat. Most fresh produce is also inadmissible in personal shipments.
