Mail USPS inbound Brasil

The DHEA takes care of elevated blood sugar as you return to youthful status. Glucose levels return to normal, testosterone levels on your 18th summer, mind as clear as your teens... Projected to prevent  approx 32 degenerative diseases due to old age.

This is on my own experience.

Maybe should think of buying 11 more bottles of EDTA. The DHEA its up to you. Most male reaches all the parameters of a youthful person at 100mg of DHEA per day.
Above that, it could cause cancer of the prostate. But I´ve seen a colleague of mine go up to 150mg per day with no problems...

don´t have my CPF. I saw my letters (they forwarded the photo) lumped as a package. If I lost it again I´ll let you know  what I think then...

I don't really care.  We often disagree, but it's generally just about opinions, so I pass it off.  But this is bad information that can seriously inconvenience other people, so I'm making an exception.  Here's the story:

On May 8, 2015, Sindifisco Nacional, the national union of the customs inspectors, passed a resolution for a work-to-rule action against the Receita Federal, mostly over pay, but over other issues as well.  The union's demands have not been met, that resolution is still in effect, and it is enforced sporadically, in different parts of the country at different times.  Viracopos International Airport in Campinas, being Brazil's principal air freight hub, is a frequent work-to-rule target.

In Brazilian Portuguese, work-to-rule is generally translated "operação padrão"; the term in Portugal is more descriptive:  "greve de zelo", "zeal strike".  And it means what it says:  the inspectors enforce every rule, and everything that they think is a rule, that can possibly be applied to whatever is in their work queue that day, regardless of the cost or the delay, since that's the point.

Last year, I bought a CD from Amazon, and saw on the DHL tracking that it had made it to Viracopos.  After about a week, i started calling DHL.  After several attempts, they responded that they had tried to contact me (they hadn't), and that the Customs Inspector had rejected the shipment because it didn't have my CPF on it.  I asked whether I could give them my CPF, and they said no, because it was already being processed for return.

I didn't lose anything, because as soon as it was returned, Amazon gave me a refund -- and changed their policy on shipments to Brazil to require a CPF to complete an order, as reported above.

As I said, I don't know the extent to which documents are affected (little if at all, I would think), and there are lots of other reasons that mail could disappear en route.   But I, for one, won't have goods shipped to me again without a CPF on the shipping label:  I can't see any upside to that particular gamble.

Viracopos International Airport in Campinas is not my favorite. Even without cargo just connecting flights. They just search everything, not any people skills. Wife was tried after 7 hour layover for domestic connection and when going thru C&I she present ID, but they wanted her passport she just toss it on the desk and was scolded. (BR passport for connecting??? to Foz.)
Everything goes thru there and when I check where package or letter is, always "waiting on customs"....

I bought this new one from Waverly Labs. They already produced a ear bud translator where two people can talk. Each using a ear bud but the problem was each had to use there own phone. The new one is over the ear bigger and 4 over the ear can all attack to one phone for translation. It has two other modes one for just listen to conservation the other for lectures where it can translate to as many people that have phones. It will be available in November for shipping. This is there second version they produced successfully.

This information is not new at all...

https://globaldataconsortium.com/brazil-cpf/

1. People who temporary comes to Brazil is exempted US$3000 on his belongings for personal use
    and must return to the point of origin (country) after the stay.

2. $500USD for accompanied baggage for residents or non-residents but the merchandise stays in
    Brazil.

Complication with the CPF on every shipment (unaccompanied):

    a. Recipient foreigners who don´t have a CPF should not ship items for use in Brazil for threats of
    being returned or being destroyed by Brazilian customs. They are now thrown to the accompanied
    baggage only but then should declare personal properties above $500USD to be exempted to the
    allowed $3000USD. This should also apply to Brazilian citizens living overseas but only in Brazil for a
    limited time.

    b. With this ruling it appears that Correios will now also not accept packages without the CPF
    on them like it has done in the past. I still think letters are not affected because they fall under
    documents and without taxable value like a merchandise. My letters were lumped in one package
    and that could present problems.

I don´t really care what airport it originated. It has to be sanctioned by the Federal government for more revenue enforcement and thats that. The target really are residents for more effective tax
collection. So be aware that if you have the CRNM, presenting your passport at the customs inspection area is much better because of the higher $3000USD exemption. Unless of course they ask you if you´re a resident of Brazil...

Thank you for correcting your originally erroneous advice.  :top:

I will do a review when I get it.the translator. My biggest test will be to listen to conversation it supposed to work within 8 feet.

I wasn´t advising anyone. I was expressing my opinion. We are all people and get busy (I have
always projects going on) and sometimes don´t catch up right away. My only really complain is that you should have at least showed a link to strengthen your case. It´s not the "Hey, believe me because I said so." I´m that type of person. You have to show me the money!

I´m not a person who runs with the herd. I´m a contrarian with stock investments. I look at trends,
evaluate and devise a plan accordingly.

Hey, what is right is right. We need to enlighten people who seems to have no clues of what´s going on.

Be good and wise....

Likewise.  I do my best, and I  suppose that you do, too, in your way.
Have a good evening.   :par:

Done. Nice dreams!

Just had. Credit card Replacement from the USA. Made sure my CPF was on the address under the name. It came UPS. It took about a week and a half the company paid the cost to send it. When it arrived there was no cost. We had another Credit card sent before but didn’t have CPF on the address. They change us at deliver 170 Reals. Not sure why the changes just our experience. I am getting a package next month. The duty was paid in advance will have CPF on the address. Will see if we get charged if not I think CPF on the address make the difference.

Thanks. Looking forward to your answer(s)
