We are continuously working to secure stable service for airmail. However, please note that the delivery of international mail items may be delayed due to the service of flights for airmail being continuously reduced. Thank you for your understanding.
For details on the latest status concerning the acceptance of mail items destined to countries and territories worldwide and information about mail delivery delays, etc., please check here.
EMS items sent to the U.S. with handwritten labels cannot be accepted as a general rule.
Transmission of electronic customs clearance data became obligatory from January 1, 2021 (Fri), and items cannot be sent to the U.S. with handwritten EMS labels. When sending items, please make sure to use the International Mail My Page Service.
A special additional rate for EMS corresponding to the additional price required due to an increase in transportation cost will be introduced from June 1 (Tue) for EMS sent to two areas including the U.S. (Oceania, North and Central America, Middle East, and Europe).
