Sending Foods to Brazil by International Postal Service
June 20, 2011
Based on the notification received from Brazil, the International Mail Requirements List has been changed to reflect the fact that Japanese foods and foods sent from Japan are now prohibited from being sent to Brazil.
(See the relevant announcement, "Changes to the International Mail Requirements List" of May 25, 2011.)
Nevertheless, there is an increasing number of cases of the return of international postal items including foods sent from Japan to Brazil as a result of Brazil Customs' refusal to import them. Accordingly, please understand that it is now no longer possible to send foods to Brazil by utilizing international postal service.
Also please be informed that the return of the items refused by Customs will result in expected considerable delay.
