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.
