The short answer to that question is that it depends on the situation. But it’s not anything to worry about.
There’s a workaround that makes it possible to order from Emp and have the package shipped to Papua New Guinea. And the shipping rate is inexpensive.
How to Deliver Items from the Emp Online Store to Papua New Guinea
To ship items from Emp internationally, you’ll need a physical address located in the United States.
The United States address is where you’ll receive the items that you order from Emp.
But wait one minute! How is it possible to have an address in the United States when you don’t live there, and neither do your relatives?
I’ll let you in on a little-known secret: there are U.S. based companies out there that provide customers with physical U.S. addresses. Yup, you read that right!
Their entire business model is based on providing foreign customers with U.S. addresses.
These addresses can be used to order items online, which then get forwarded to your real home address. They’ll even help you out with that process.
These companies are known as Freight Forwarders.
All you have to do is sign up with one of these services, and they’ll allocate a U.S. address to you.
When you order online, get your items shipped to this address, and the Freight Forwarder will receive your package and forward it on to you.
In our experience, the best Freight Forwarder is MyUS.
Why are they the best? Well, they charge no extra taxes, their rates are cheap, and they provide a very reliable service.
We’ve used them to ship packages abroad for years now.
Hopefully, you can now see how it all works. When ordering from the Emp store, or any other U.S.-only store for that matter, you simply get the packages shipped to the U.S. based address.
Your packages will then be shipped to the address that MyUS supplied you with.
Buy Your Product(S) From the Emp Online Store
When you’re shopping online and choose to deliver to your allocated Freight Forwarder address, the delivery will be received by their team.
At this point, the Freight Forwarder will ship your package to your address in Papua New Guinea.
If you have ordered multiple items from multiple US online stores, MyUS will package all of your orders together and send as one.
So, there you have it. You can enjoy the luxury of shopping on the Emp US online store, without having to actually live there.
