You can use the British Forces Post Office (BFPO) to send a letter or parcel to:
- serving armed forces personnel and their families
- an employee of the Ministry of Defence (MOD), or another official organisation, who’s entitled to use BFPO
How to use the BFPO
Check the list of what you cannot send.
If you’re sending a parcel, fill out a customs declaration form.
If you do not do these things, your post could be lost, delayed, destroyed or returned to you.
Consider the best way to post your item based on the value, cost, size and weight.
Allow plenty of time for your post to arrive. It can take several weeks.
The most your parcel can weigh is usually:
- 20kg if you post it at a Post Office
- 30kg if you order something with a UK-based online retailer
Some destinations have a lower weight limit.
