Japan Post Announced Suspension of International Mail Service Destined to Europe

Japan Post announced suspension of any type of air mails including EMS to Europe due to the unstable situation in Ukraine.

Only surface shipping is available to Europe now. I may be able to use DHL, but their shipping cost is pretty expensive. Also, the cost estimation for DHL is difficult, and an additional shipping cost may incur after I pack the item. On the other hand, I will refund the difference if it is cheaper than my estimate. Another option is to wait until Japan Post restarts EMS. Even when they restart it, there might be a significant delivery delay because of the confusion in the world.

I’m very sad and angry for what’s happening in Ukraine, and really hope the return of peace soon.

You can check what shipping method is available to your country from Japan Post’s international mail service availability chart as below.
