The exterior problem arising from the study of a flow past anobstacle is one of the most classical and important subjects in gasdynamics and fluid mechanics. The point of this problem is to assignthe bulk velocity at infinity, which is not a trivial driving forceon the flow so that some non-trivial solution profiles persist. Inthis paper, we consider the exterior problem for the Boltzmannequation when the Mach number of the far field equilibrium state issmall. The result here generalizes the previous one by Ukai-Asano onthe same problem to more general boundary conditions by cruciallyusing the velocity average argument.
