Is it legal?

In most countries there is no violation of customs regulations when you receive the medicines at your home address. Customs regulations allow individuals to receive prescribed medicines for personal use. It is not permitted to receive large quantities of medicines by mail for commercial use without an import and distribution license.

Mifepristone and Misoprostol are on the list of essential medicines of the WHO. Misoprostol is registered in most countries and can also be used to prevent stomach ulcers. Mifepristone is not registered in all countries but this should not be a problem because the medicines are for personal use only. Mifepristone can also be used as a morning-after pill, to treat breast cancer and some brain tumours. The possession of small quantities of Mifepristone or Misoprostol for personal use only is allowed in most countries.
