How to Request Certificates/Transcripts

Also, there is a large delay in the case of the Express Mail Service (EMS). In some countries, we have stopped accepting EMS, and it is not possible for overseas shipments from ICU. Therefore, for the time being, we will stop accepting all overseas shipments and only ship to Japan.
