The LetterPack is a pre-paid envelope available at Japanese post offices and most convenience stores. The LetterPack provides an express return of your documents and includes a barcode so you can track your incoming packages. To track your LetterPack, click here.

Effective October 1, 2019, the LetterPack envelope fee will be increased by 10 yen.

  • The fee for LetterPack LIGHT will rise from 360 to 370 yen. LetterPack LIGHT is traceable and does not require a delivery signature.
  • The fee for LetterPack PLUS will rise to 520 yen. LetterPack PLUS is traceable and requires a delivery signature.

After October 1, 2019, Japan Post will not deliver LetterPacks bought under the old fee structure without an extra 10 yen stamp. For this reason, after September 20, 2019 we will only accept LetterPacks purchased with the new fee or “old” LetterPacks that have the stamp attached at the time of application at the Embassy.
