When will international postal service resume?

Recommended Posts

I have several pieces of mail I need sent to me from the U.S. I previously saw information staying that postal service would t resume until after May 31. I know FedEx, and other couriers are available, but don't want to go that route due to cost. When will I be available to receive mail via post from the U.S?

A family member sent me something from IN in the U.S. five weeks ago by two-week mail and it hasn't arrived yet.

Our local post office stopped delivering ordinary mail years ago when they got overwhelmed by parcels. Since then they just throw away mail (envelopes) and only deliver parcels. Occasionally we get some envelope randomly, maybe six months late or so, usually a bill. We have to pay all our bills at the different companies offices.

I got a regular letter from the US last week.  Told my sister before it arrived that it would likely be returned to her and then it showed up.

The UK restarted international postal services over a week ago, but they've got a big backlog to clear and with so few flights to places like Thailand I don't think we'll see "Express Mail" here for a while.

I ordered several items from China about 2 months ago and they still haven't arrived. I'm wondering if the world will ever get back to the way it was before the virus hit. Probably not if we accept all the restrictions and regulations put in place that have taken our freedoms and rights away in guise of "protecting" us.

I have regularly gotten my US mail forwarded to me in Thailand the last few years. These last few months have definitely been severely impacted and delayed. The last two envelopes I received earlier this month took 5 weeks, last year 2 weeks was normal.
