In the last two months alone, I’ve successfully sent (and they’ve been registered) 9 postcards to Russia. Your post office has definitely got it wrong. There’s never been any interruption to post to Russia
Hi everyone. I’m looking for a bit of advice. I have 7 expired travelling postcards going to Russia and Postcrossing has now blocked my account. They range in times from 94 days to 340 days. I’ve messaged Postcrossing but they haven’t replied. Looking at this thread, it doesn’t seem like anyone else is having this problem, but if anyone has any pearls of wisdom on this subject, i’d love to hear them because i’m really missing sending official postcards.
Yes that does happen, you will have wait until some of your travelling and expired postcards to be registered by their recipients before they will allow you to send more postcards, this hobby is all about patience.
Discussing on another thread, I am wondering if it is a regional issue, most of my expired postcards to Russia where posted in the North West Area, yet from London postcards are travelling between 40 & 60 days.
Even domestically, post is all over the place, I’m still awaiting postcards in the British Isles Round Robin.
You are not alone!
I currently have 7 expired cards to Russia, ranging from 68 days to more than 300. I have 12 expired cards in total - close to 10% expiry in 2022. I did have 17 cards reach Russia, though.
Postcrossing hasn’t blocked my account however, so I wonder what the criteria for blocking are?
