We are comming to the US soon from Europe.

Is it a good idea to send our items (clothes, toys, books) via regular post like UPS to the US? There are around 30 boxes.

Is the custom clearance a problem?

Thanks.

Not sure if it applies to your case, but I receive fairly large packages from my family from Europe every couple of months (usually just a random collection of things I miss from home: old books, clothes, candy lol). I use USPS and never had a problem so far, but not sure what is the case for 30+ boxes.

I know some people who moved with whole family and brought things like furniture to US. They used a marine container shipping, but I'm not too familiar with how it works and what's the price:)

Have you or anyone you know recently traveled into the US with a temporary/emergency passport?

Context - German passport holder currently traveling overseas. The bio page popped out the passport - being told this won't be accepted at Port of entry. German consulate can only provide a temporary/emergency passport in 2 days. The replacement one takes 3-6 weeks.

From googling this, seems like the temporary passport wont be accepted for visa free travel, but okay with visa
