I have an ITN: The U.S. Census Bureau assigns an Internal Transaction Number (ITN) when you file your EEI. We use this number to confirm your EEI.
No EEI Needed: Your shipment doesn't require an EEI if the total value is under US$2,500 and you are not shipping items that require an export license.
Self-file with AES Direct (AES OPT 2): File your own EEI through aesdirect.census.gov. You must file before export of your shipment unless you are an approved U.S. Principal Party In Interest (USPPI).
UPS file my EEI for me: We can file your EEI with the U.S. Census Bureau for an additional fee.
File Post Departure (AES OPT 4): If you are an approved USPPI, you must file within 10 calendar days of your export date.
