Post office warns of delay in imports and international shipments | Brazil

The post offices published two notices to the public explaining that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there is no way to guarantee delivery times for international shipments. The company stopped shipping parcels to 177 countries such as China, Argentina and Canada, either due to lack of flights or due to limitations in destination postal services. Imports from these countries may also be affected.

“As a result of measures against the coronavirus in several countries, there is no way to guarantee that the delivery deadline for international shipments will be met,” explained the Post. According to the company, the routing and distribution of orders were hampered by three main reasons:

  • decrease or lack of flights;
  • decrease in the number of employees allocated in the distribution of postal items;
  • suspension of delivery.

These restrictions may also affect imported products, according to the Post. “In some cases, the cargo has been compromised from the beginning, and contact with foreign post offices is being maintained to optimize shipments”, says the company.

Post offices suspend shipments to 177 countries

The Post Offices suspended shipments to 177 countries, “in view of the guidelines of the companies at the destination or the lack of flight offers to these locations”. The list includes Argentina, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay, Canada, Mexico, China and Japan; it can be checked in full at the end of the post.

The objects that were posted to these countries may be returned to the senders: the tracking will have the warning “impossibility of sending due to embargoes abroad”.

In addition, the Post Office recalls that some postal services in other countries no longer require a subscription at the time of delivery, to protect the health of postmen and recipients.

For this reason, the international tracking of registered objects can say that the receipt was made by “Courier” or “WITHOUT CV19 SUBSCRIPTION”. According to the state company, “this measure is temporary and will remain in force until further notice”.
