Why are you receiving it by MAIL on paper for which trees have been cut down, air polluted by the numerous vehicles used in it's delivery to you. Why not just go online and click PAPERLESS. You can th

I received my usual monthly bank statement from HSBC UK this week. Thats the only post I get on a regular basis and it hasn't stopped.

I think if you send it by EMS it might get here within a reasonable time frame. Won't be cheap but a debit card is very useful.   I also have a debit card in the UK waiting to be sent. So fa

I sent a letter to the UK by EMS on 27 July.

 

Eight days later it is stuck in a backlog of post either:

 

(a) at Suvarnabhumi as the Parcelforce tracking system tells me; or

 

(b) in an unscanned backlog in the UK as the Thai post office asserts.

I susect (a)   as my American friend is also facing the same problem  but of course his parcel was supposed to go to the USA   our local post office says America is not excepting post from Thailand due to Covid (zombies)  but why would   UK or USA not except post from a country that has had no Covid (zombies) for months now ?

I am updating this as the information may be helpful to others.

 

This item of post sent by EMS arrived at its destination in the UK today.  From posting the letter in Chumphon to arrival at destination in the UK took nine days.

 

It is clear from the updated online tracking record that the delay was at Suvarabhumi airport.  Once the letter arrived in the UK it was delivered by Parcelforce in less than 24 hours.

Packages out of Thailand as bad as it gets right now.

 

In to Thailand it is bad but only about half the time of the out. 

 

I think this is all due to lack of international flights and backlogs. 

 

I have also heard reports of tracking numbers not updating, and packages arriving (after months) and the tracking info only updating after arrival. 

 

Everything has gone to <deleted>, for nothing. If i need to blow my nose or go get a gallon of milk, it does not matter, covid affects everything. What a joke.

I know it's a sad situation. Probably outbound letters and packages from Thailand Post are only going on Thai Airways and they are currently not flying (except for a few repatriation flights). Can't see ThaiPost paying to transfer to other carriers. I was at Suvarnabhumi last week and it was like a museum with all the Thai Airways planes mothballed. A card to from Thailand to UK for my mom's birthday took 3 months sent April arrived July - I was amazed it actually arrived to be honest.
