Before you send international mail, you should know the rules of grammar. For example, the country name should be in capital letters and written in the appropriate language. Also, the last line should contain the name of the country you’re sending to in English. Don’t use abbreviations! If you have questions about international mail, ask your Mail Operations Shift Leader. He or she will be able to help you out. You can also find helpful hints on writing the country’s name on the outside of your mail.
COVID-19 pandemic affects international mail in Sri Lanka
The Department of Posts has advised mail-bearing citizens in Sri Lanka to take care of their international mail deliveries. However, it has advised them to make alternative arrangements for mail transport as the COVID-19 pandemic has affected air travel in the country. The department has said it will accept inbound international mail, parcel-post and EMS items. Although it will process mail in accordance with government restrictions, the delivery standards cannot be guaranteed.
The government has declared a state of emergency in Sri Lanka to contain the spread of COVID-19. The government has also issued new health restrictions and has shut down certain areas of the country until May 16. The reduced number of outbound flights affects international mail services. The suspension of transit services affects all categories of mail, including parcel-post and EMS items. As a result, delivery times for outbound mail and EMS items have increased.
Force majeure affects delivery of inbound items in Jamaica
Force majeure has been declared in Jamaica, affecting the delivery of inbound mail and other items. During times of heightened political and social tension, the country’s postal service has been forced to suspend mail delivery. A curfew in effect from November 15 to December 13, 2021, affects service delivery standards. Force majeure has been declared in the island until the situation is restored. However, this isn’t an issue for military mail, as the postal service has been notified of the curfew and is restoring normal operations.
The Philippines Postal Service has announced a lockdown in the National Capital Region, aimed at limiting the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The lockdown will last from September 16 to April 11, 2021. In the meantime, postal services in the Philippines will face delays in processing, transporting, and delivering inbound mail. Additionally, inbound and outbound postal mail will no longer be delivered if the addresse does not sign the package.
The Bermuda Post Office has suspended all operations and told staff at its office of exchange to self-quarantine. They must remain in the island until they are instructed by local health authorities. The closure will impact the delivery quality of inbound and outbound mail, including diplomatic mail. This is because COVID is an infectious disease that affects mail and other inbound and outbound items. So, while the Jamaican Postal Service has taken steps to reduce the spread of COVID, it will continue to restrict international mail delivery.
COVID-19 pandemic affects delivery of inbound items in Vietnam
The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the delivery of inbound items in Vietnam. While the city is gradually resuming its operations, many businesses and industries remain closed. Authorities in Ho Chi Minh City are enforcing social distancing measures, such as requiring people to wear face masks, keeping a two-meter distance when socializing, and enforcing strict hygiene standards. The city has also added face masks to the list of essential goods and has launched a price stabilization program to purchase them at lower prices than the market price.
A ban on inbound flights from countries that have been affected by the disease has been implemented in Vietnam. The ban currently applies to the UK and South Africa, but will probably be extended in the coming days. Meanwhile, a local case of the virus was confirmed in Hai Duong and linked to a factory worker from Japan. In addition, four industrial parks in the city are expected to gradually reopen. Among these are those that serve Samsung and its suppliers.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic began in February, Vietnam has been coping with the effects. While it has achieved preliminary control in terms of deaths and cases, it has remained surrounded by potential risks. Vietnam’s long border with China is a potential source of additional challenges. While early action may curb the spread of the disease in the community, the disease can also be transmitted by direct contact with the infected person.
