Sincerely yours,

Important Notice,
Please be informed that since Japan Customs was very strict since January 16, 2018 electronic filing and export declaration inspection of balikbayan boxes takes 2 weeks. We are very sorry for every delay it may cause to reach the balikbayan box/es to your consignee in the Philippines.

Thank you very much for understanding.

Once we received your Balikbayan Box, it will be sent to the warehouse in Yokohama for inspection. For the next step, it will be sent to Yokohama customs for export declaration and sent to Manila by ship. Once your Balikbayan Box arrives safely in Manila, it will be checked in domestic customs and delivered to the final destination.
