Upon receiving a notice from the Pakistan Post Office Department to the effect that delivery of mail in certain areas in Pakistan may not be possible for the time being due to the earthquake on October 8, Japan Post announced that the reception of international mail to the specified areas in Pakistan will be suspended from this day (October 24, 2005).

For international mail that has already been accepted for the areas and still held in Japan, we will return them to the senders along with postage paid.

Since delivery services are available in other areas of Pakistan, although with some delay, we will continue accepting international mail addressed to those areas.
