The USDA has introduced the Can I Bring It web site to answer questions about items that travelers may carry into the U.S. and to reduce the risk of introducing dangerous stowaways – invasive species.

The U.S. has laws that prohibit or restrict the entry of certain agricultural products from other countries, including meats, fruits, vegetables, plants, soil, seeds, and some plant-based handicrafts, among other items.

Can I Bring It helps people quickly see if the item they wish to bring into the U.S. is allowed and, as a result, makes travelers our partners in protecting our food supply and environment from invasive pests.
