Will the U.S. allow this to come in from Thailand?

I am ordering this off of aquabid.com and I would like to know if the U.S. would let one of these come in from out of country?

Have you ordered out of country items like this and have they been allowed to enter?

Please respond. I really do not want to order something and have it not come in. I am ordering it within the next 2 days, and I would really like answers by then.

Thank you.

I'm not sure but I can't see why not? It's not alive lol I cannot order fish from USA, so sellers do not have a Canadian or World flag on their post. I think I may look into something for our 45gal long down the road from there!

You could always send the seller a question and ask :) They would know. Thank you for posting this!

Your fish will be packed in Thailand with hundreds of others and shipped to someone with an import license and they will sort the fish out and usually within a few weeks get your fish shipped to you. Id go with Linda Olson or Jen when picking a transhipper.

It's not fish, it's driftwood.

Oops..DROID didn't pull up the auction so I assumed hana. Hmm that is a good question. Well I get my almond leaves from Thailand ...the seller just has to fill out a customs form before shipping. It'll be inspected and then delivered.

Ya, usually it's live good that can be an issue. I say you're good to get! I can't see this being any different than buying furniture from over seas, it's all dead treated wood. Do post pictures when you do, I really would love to hear how this goes!
