Use of BFPO?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Not too sure if this is the right place - perhaps the moderators can move it, if not.
    I have a question about using BFPO. Can a non-UK citizen employed as a NATO civilian in Afghanistan use the BFPO service to send and receive mail from the UK? I have checked the BFPO web page but I can't find the answer.

    Many thanks,

  2. I send mail to a mate who works closely with UK Forces in Afghan via BFPO, however I have to send it via a UK poc.

    Hope this helps
  3. I think that under the rules as it stands you would not be able to use the service as it applies to U.K. Armed Forces and U.K. government i,e Foreign & Commonwealth Office as a priority,obviously.Although iam aware that certain outside agencies including NGOs and others have used our service before,you wont automatically be able to use it because we are a NATO relation.

    If you have direct access to said BFPO go and speak to the NCO i/c (person in charge )and ask them ,they will know the answer!
  4. Thanks for your replies and your help!
