Resumption and temporary suspension of acceptance, delivery delays of mail items destined to various countries/territories (Updated on January 12)
Japan Post acceptance of various international mail items has been temporarily suspended due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. Meanwhile, they will temporarily suspend acceptance of mail items as shown in the table below from January 13.
For details on the latest status concerning the acceptance of mail items destined to countries and territories worldwide and information about delivery delays of mail items and other, please check here.
Japan Post continue to temporarily suspend acceptance of mail items destined to various countries and territories because their postal operators are still not accepting inbound postal items and/or their transportation performance remains significantly reduced due to reduction of flights from/to Japan.
Items which have already been accepted and cannot be dispatched to their destinations will be returned from the delivery offices to the senders in order.
In addition, because of the global reduction of flights, considerable delivery delays are expected for accepted outbound mail items.
Japan Post sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. It would be appreciated if you would kindly understand this situation in advance.
