International Shipping

There are several options when it comes to overseas shipping with Leaf Only. Overall, we try to be as accommodating as possible for our international customers. Generally, most customers choose to use USPS, but occasionally, customers will have their own accounts with a freight forwarding service or other carriers. Choose whatever option is right for you!

Option 1) Shipping through a freight forwarding company or other shipping carrier

This option is commonly used by international customers who receive regular shipments and want to reduce their costs. After establishing a relationship with a shipping carrier of your choice, please contact us to make the appropriate arrangements to send out your order(s).

Option 2) Shipping through the United States Postal Service. (Most popular for retail customers)

Unprocessed tobacco leaf is not considered " roll your own tobacco", and is 100% legal to send through the United States Postal Service. It is not in voilation of the PACT Act or any other regulations concerning the delivery of tobacco through US mail. After determining the approximate shipping cost of your order, please contact us to make the appropriate arrangements for shipping your order.
