Foreign Gifts

Minimal Value for Foreign Gifts: $415.00

Every three years, the GSA is required to revise this minimal value.

Specifically, 5 U.S.C. 7432 requires the Administrator of General Services, in consultation with the Secretary of State, to redefine every three years the definition for “minimal value” for a foreign gift, based on the changes in the consumer price index for the immediately preceding three years. The implementing regulation is 41 CFR 102-42, “Utilization, Donation, and Disposal of Foreign Gifts and Decorations.” The current minimal value of $415 was defined in Federal Management Regulation (FMR) Bulletin B-50 [PDF - 268 KB] Foreign Gift and Decoration Minimal Value, dated March 10, 2020.
