:postcard: Mail Suspension Alerts

Postal Monitor has been updated for:
Dominican Republic, Netherlands

Update Laos
Good News ! All services are resumed, but traffic is very low, only 2 shipments every month.


Some postal administrations don’t care to update their closed destinations lists apparently. I don’t have other explanation of it.
I’m receiving mail from Hong Kong, India, Japan despite they not sending to Kazakhstan according postal monitor. All incoming mail have October - November 2021 postmarks.

Postal Monitor has been updated for:
Portugal, Singapore.

There is no way to tell if the postal routes were working or it was a matter of luck, and if the working routes will continue working on regular basis or it was temporary. Some mail are lucky to “hitchhike” on parcel mail or on other unusual transportations and get to suspended destinations.
Unless it is official, there will be no guarantee that the next postcard will be treated in the same way.

That’s why we tend to be on the safer side and usually remove a suspended country only when an official announcement has been made by the postal agency.
Everyone is welcome to contact their postal agency to inquire or request to have the list updated.

The main purpose of Postal Monitor (and this alert thread) is to avoid postcards to be rejected or returned by post offices, also to prevent members from receiving unexpected surcharges or higher postal rates.


New alerts from PostNL (Netherlands).

@djctv2020 That was already added in the previous update. Thanks :slightly_smiling_face:
@mizaa Hello, welcome to the forum. Those 145 counties were removed from Postal Monitor in October. Please let us know if anything had changed since then. Thank you :slightly_smiling_face:

Hello. Those 145 countries listed is the latest update from our local post office. I just checked with them as I received address to one of the 145 countries listed :sweat_smile:

On the Postal Monitor, we list the countries to which mail service is currently not working. So if a country is listed under Malaysia on the Postal Monitor, it means Pos Malaysia is not sending to those countries. Currently there are 101 countries or territories on that list — and about 145 to which service is working.

Sounds like everything is correct on our side?

@Hitokage and @SincerelyGeo, thank you for your report!

@djctv2020 Just to let you know that we are not keeping track of delays.
This is what we are looking for.

  • Suspensions only (=when your post office will not accept mail to the destination. Not delays.)
  • Outbound only (=sending, not receiving)
  • Regular letter post only (not EMS/urgent/express, parcels/packages)
  • Mid to Long-term ISO 3166-1 “Country-to-country” suspensions (not provincial/local)
