Our international reply mail is an excellent option for reaching out to potential clients and staying in touch with existing clients. It can be included in direct mailing campaigns as response elements (letters or cards). International reply mail is free of charge for recipients, which ensures high response rates. You will only be charged for items that have actually been returned. Please note that a deferred payment agreement with Österreichische Post is required. As an alternative, a PO box must be indicated as the recipient. International reply mail is a standardized process and is thus available world-wide. Templates for international reply mail are available in the download section.

International letter mail rates apply to letters and newspapers sent to and from military post offices abroad (Priority, zone "Rest of Europe").

Currently, three military post offices are in operation:
