Different shipping carriers require packages going to US territories (like Puerto Rico) to follow certain address formats to create shipping labels. In many cases, you’ll need to fill out customs declarations, even though the carrier considers the shipment a domestic one.

Shipping via USPS:
The USPS requires shippers to use the two-character abbreviation for the state/region and the two-letter code for the United States for the country.
