Recommended Posts

I tried to mail a letter today bound for USA. the letter has just 2 sheets of A4 paper in it.

the guy said they don't accept unless in a box or send EMS which could cost 800 baht. He said I can send as parcel< I asked him what is difference

what is going on here? Anyone know?

Similar situation for me.  To pieces of A4. Sent EMS to UK at cost 800 baht. Posted 23 June currently still somewhere between Thailand and UK.

Tracking shows being handled by Parcel force.

Standard postal mail to many countries has been interrupted for quite a while (months).

The situation has gradually relaxed, but seems that USA is still not on the list of countries for standard airmail.

I try to find the latest thread...

yes ... cannot just send as a normal letter as postal services worldwide have been either halted or at the least disrupted.

this makes even more complex - making moreso the can't see trees for the forest

 - there was a very recent major surge in passing of drugs in satchels in Letter size envelopes

 

Those parcel xrayers are going to be double busy

One more time you didn't understand. There is not airmail AT ALL to the <deleted>SA since June 1st, letters or parcels.

only EMS is possible, and today the situation is still the same. Impossible to know why, as there are many planes to US everyday.

I sent two envelopes to the US on June 9.

 

Neither of them has been delivered as of today (July 3).

 

Tracking indicates that they arrived in the US on June 22.

Yes, exactly my situation.  Arrived at USPS Chicago Customs center on June 22 and both remain there.  Not even packages, just envelopes with documents in them.
