Tajik Post advises that the government has implemented a series of measures, effective from until May 31,2020, to reduce the risk of the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). These measures include the cancellation of all international flights. As this results in a lack of transport capacity, Tajik Post has declared a situation of force majeure, with effect from March 20. 2020, and the shipment of all categories of outbound and transit mail is suspended until further notice. Nevertheless, Tajik Post asks all Union member countries to continue sending their mail dispatches to Tajikistan via air cargo and charter flights, or by any other means of transport that remains possible. Inbound mail to Tajikistan will continue to be delivered as usual.
Temporary Service Suspension — The Postal Service will temporarily suspend international mail acceptance for certain destinations due to service impacts related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Effective April 7, 2020, the Postal Service has temporarily suspended international mail acceptance to destinations where air and sea transportation is unavailable due to widespread cancellations and restrictions into the area. Customers are asked to refrain from mailing items addressed to Solomon Islands until further notice.
These service disruptions affect Priority Mail Express International® (PMEI), Priority Mail International® (PMI), First-Class Mail International® (FCMI), First-Class Package International Service® (FCPIS®), International Priority Airmail® (IPA®), International Surface Air Lift® (ISAL®), and M-Bag® items.
For already deposited items, other than GXG, Postal Service employees will endorse the items as “Mail Service Suspended — Return to Sender” and then place them in the mail stream for return.
For any returned item bearing a customs form, the Postal Service will, upon request, refund postage and fees on mail returned due to the suspension of service.
For all other returned items not bearing a customs declarations form, the Postal Service will, upon request, refund postage and fees on mail returned due to the suspension of service, or the sender may re-mail them with the existing postage once service has been restored. When remailing under this option, customers must cross out the markings “Mail Service Suspended — Return to Sender.”
Unless otherwise noted, service suspensions to a particular country do not affect delivery of military and diplomatic mail.
USPS is closely monitoring the situation and will continue to update customers until the situation returns to normal.
