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 J&T and have the package shipped to Puerto Rico. And the shipping rate is inexpensive.
How to Deliver Items from the J&T Online Store to Puerto Rico
To ship internationally, J&T requires you to have a physical address in the United States. It is there that you will be expected to receive your order.
The good news is that you do not need to live in the United States, or even have relatives or friends that do, for this process to work!
If you look around online, you’ll find a bunch of companies in the U.S. offering physical United States addresses to customers located overseas.
These companies provide addresses for this specific use case, and they’ll even help ship your packages directly to you.
This type of service is called Freight Forwarding.
You simply register an account with a Freight Forwarder, and they’ll provide you with a U.S. based address.
You then use this address for your deliveries, and they’ll automatically forward them to your home country.
The Freight Forwarder which we would strongly recommend is called MyUS. They are reliable, affordable and unlike other Freight Forwarders, they do not charge extra taxes.
Since working with them, we have conveniently and inexpensively shipped many packages internationally.
Whether you buy products from J&T or another U.S.-based company, MyUS lets you conveniently ship them to your new physical U.S.-based address.

Once MyUS receives your package from J&T, they’ll ship it straight to Puerto Rico.
Another great benefit of MyUS is that they’ll actually consolidate multiple packages into one single shipment before sending it to Puerto Rico.
By using these Freight Forwarding services, you can order things from the U.S. as if you were a resident!
