What long does it take to deliver a Japan Post parcel?

There are 4 main types of shipping options currently with Japan Post, Airmail, Surface mail and Economy Air and Express Delivery Service.

  • Surface mail - This is a mail service that only delivers packages via the ground i.e. trucks and vehicles, so of course this will take the longest time to get to its destination and is usually around 1-3 months and of course will vary on the current climate, for example, if there are Covid related restrictions on travel or lockdown of a certain country your parcel will take a longer time.
  • Economy Air (SAL) - This is a service where international mail is delivered via the ground in Japan (sending country) and its destination wherever that may be and sent via "Airmail" between the two countries. This service is faster than the bog-standard "Surface mail" with having a cost that is lower than "Airmail". They offer discounts when sending over 10 items and to get an exact price you can contact Japan Post directly. It will take roughly 6 to 13 days for mail to arrive at its destination, and of course, depends on there being no hold-ups from customs at either end of the delivery process. And could be held up by the actual handling process of the destination country.
  • Airmail - This service is purely sent via airplane and is the second-quickest method of delivery, usually the fees are quite high as it is only sent via airplane to the destination country.
  • Express Mail Service (EMS) - This service is the fastest and most expensive delivery service Japan Post has to offer, but of course is because of the speed and process of the whole delivery. This is usually delivered ANYWHERE in the world between 2-4 days.
