Recommended Posts

Has anyone heard if post is coming via air mail from the UK?

Cargo flights, generally are still operating so, most likely, yes.  If international postal services had been suspended an announcement would have been made to stop people taking post that couldn't be dealt with to the post offices.

It is, but it's definitely slower than normal.

I received a package from the UK yesterday. It took about three days longer than usual.

Thailand Post is sanitizing all incoming packages which will cause a short delay. Regular letter post has been only airmail for years and is still operating. Shipping parcels to the US is stopped, by US postal service.

Things might be arriving but 2 days ago I tried to post a letter and was told no air mail leaving. Only surface. That was a Bangkok post office.

In the last 4 weeks I posted something to the UK by airmail. Took over 20 days to get to the address. Be interesting to see how long the signed paper takes to make it back here.

Are they really sanitizing anything, or are they just putting a 72-hour hold on shipments, which is how long it takes for covid-19 virus to die on surfaces?

Has anyone got a recent update?

 

My parents need to send some paperwork, it's not urgent enough to need FedEx etc. but it can't wait months either.

I received my pension statements and P60's about a week ago. They would have been posted after Apr 6th of course, the end of the tax year so I'd call that more or less normal delivery time.
