Sending a package to an overseas U.S. military base is relatively straightforward if you keep a few things in mind.
Overseas U.S. military bases are considered domestic (U.S.) shipments, which means you need to select the United States as the ship-to country. Do not select the country where the base is located. The city should always be either "APO" or "FPO" in a properly formatted APO/FPO address. Check the "This is a P.O. Box" field.
Please choose "Armed Forces (AE)" as the State option for the following:
- Armed Forces Europe
- Armed Forces Middle East
- Armed Forces Africa
- Armed Forces Canada
You also have the option of Armed Forces (AA) and Armed Forces (AP).
Here’s an example of a properly formatted APO address:
Name: PFC Jack Lyon
Address 1: 23rd Battalion
Address 2: Unit 1234, Box 56789
Country: United States
Zip/Postal Code: 96522-1215
It should be noted that FRAMED ORDERS CANNOT be sent to an APO address. Nor can we send unframed Star Maps using Express.
