@meiadeleite how is this possible? I thought the postal monitor would prevent that :thinking:

Sent 5 cards to Singapore, received 0 from Singapore

Indeed, it should… but sadly China Post is one of the few countries that does not publish their suspensions anywhere, so we have no way of checking them. :frowning:

@RainWang If you have a source we can quote on this (even if it’s just a picture of a list that your post office showed you), please get in touch!

Ooh, thank you for clarifying! That sounds hard.

I am afraid that the China Post change their suspensions list so frequently, we will never get actual update. The only way is when you goto post office, you can check whether the country is in the suspension list in the postal internal system. :disappointed_relieved:

GF PF IM LK

only 4 of 101 countries sent but not received.
25 of 101 countries received but not sent.

I sent often repeated countries.
Highest not received countries are AX around 63? and LK around 72 in ranking most cards sent.

3 countries to go to have 100 different countries received. But that can take years! Hopefully many of us can use Travel Mode soon.

I was pleasantly surprised to receive 2 new countries this year NP, the country where I signed up for Postcrossing in 2008, and VA, from wich I had sent postcards the previous year.
