    • Shipping or carrying Powdered Medical Formula Overseas

      Hello All,
      My son, who is a student in America, is traveling to Ireland for one week, then going on to Austria where he will be studying for four months this fall. We are having difficulty shipping the medical formula over to Europe for a reasonable price. Does anyone have any helpful information to assist us?
    • Parcels are rather expensive. Have you looked into the possibility to simply take a second suitcase full of formula with you? Formula for four months is not that much and the charge for excess luggage might be considerably lower than sending everything via parcel. Another alternative would be to contact a specialized hospital in Austria and get a prescription there. You should contact your health insurance about the necessary overseas health insurance.
