Where do I find my USPS international tracking number?

In most cases with USPS International Shipping, your customs form is also your USPS shipping label. The shorter PS Form 2976 may be directly attached to your package; the longer PS Form 2976‑A needs to be inserted into the Customs Declaration Envelope attached to the package’s address side. Important: Your USPS customs form number is the tracking number for your package.
