I’m receiving this message from Kazpost shop. Maybe it’s time to update Kazakhstan?

@bayankod: We have been trying to get an update for Turkey for quite a while now.

That link seems to be to the postage calculator. Are you sure that if it works in the calculator that the route is working?

And are you just checking if the destination is on the dropdown, or if the country doesn’t work for both surface and airmail options?

I’m just checked that our postal service can send which countries.In that page you can choose where you can send postcards.I made that list by looking that page.For a better list I’ll contact with our postal service and I’ll update my list after that.And thanks for Postcrossing :innocent: :innocent:

Are there any countries on that postage calculator page that clearly return a message that the route is not available when you try to calculate?

In any case, the ideal would be to get a list of suspended routes from PTT itself. If you are able to get that, it would be great as the current list we have is probably not up to date since it’s already from April.

There is a link to the newest postal information on Finland (updated 27 Oct. 2020, a downloadable PDF).

The Postal Monitor and the first post on this thread already link to that page. Unfortunately, the URL of the PDF changes every time Posti updates the file (and the previous stops working), so we link to that page instead.

Curiosity: they are the only postal operator that generates PDFs that can’t be parsed — just try copy&pasting something from it. :man_shrugging:

None of them seem to return a message like “not able to send” (actually by the end of this post I discovered one that does), although some of them instead of estimating the length of time to arrive, just have a dash in that field.

For example, if you put in the US, it returns “10-14” in the number of days field. If you put in (Western) Samoa, it returns “undefined.” American Samoa returns “-”.

Of the countries marked with question marks in @bayankod’s post, (North) Macedonia says 7-10 days, Mauritania says “-”, Cayman Islands says “-”, Georgia says “yok” (which means no - so apparently I’ve just discovered a definite negative), and Yemen is not even on the list (sounds like a nope).
