About Changes to the International Mail Requirements List

March 15, 2013

The International Mail Requirements List will change on March 15, 2013.

On May 25, 2011 and June 20, 2011 we made the following announcements - "Changes to the International Mailing Requirements List" and "Shipment of Japanese Food Items to Brazil". They stated that starting from June 2011 it would be impossible to send food items both produced in Japan and sent from Japan to Brazil. However, we have recently received an announcement from the Brazil Post notifying us that some of the restrictions on food items shipment (due to the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake) have now been lifted.
