I think some countries outside the US ship to US addresses and others 
don't. The company may have obtained whatever approval is necessary; 
you could check with them.

I would mark the outside of the package clearly with the contents 
("live plant material: seeds" and the species). There certainly are 
seed borne diseases. Also, a plant common and no problem in some areas 
can be a hazardous invasive in other areas.

It occurs to me that you could also check with the post office. They 
should know, or know where you can find out, about shipping seeds.
