How many stamps do I need for international postage to Japan?
The size of your envelope will determine the number of stamps you need when posting a letter internationally to Japan. On the other hand, you can post letters to Japan using our Envelope Service without having to use stamps. You simply pay the postage fee when placing your order. Simple as that!
What happens if I post a letter to Japan without a stamp?
When using regular postal services, you should not try to post a letter to Japan without a stamp, as this is proof of payment. If you post a letter to Japan without a stamp, it may be returned to the sender or, if delivered, the recipient will be charged for the postage. Find out more about shipping a letter without a stamp.
However, if you opt for our Envelope Service, you pay for the shipping when placing your order and you do not need any stamp.
Where can I find suitable packaging materials when posting to Japan?
Stationery and hardware stores usually provide the right materials you need to prepare your parcel or letter postage to Japan. For document shipments, we recommend hard-back or padded envelopes. For package shipping, the best way to pack your items is in a cardboard box. When posting to Japan, you should use only quality packaging materials, to minimise the risk of lost or damaged items.
Is posting a parcel to Japan cheaper than sending it via courier?
While posting a package to Japan may be cheaper with a standard mailing service, courier services offer several advantages such as:
  • Shorter transit times in almost all cases
  • Door-to-door delivery
  • Online tracking for extra security
  • More flexibility on the dimensions allowed
