The South African Post Office (SAPO) has revised the list of countries to which their mailing service is currently available… and unfortunately for the many South Africans who have family and friends in Australia and New Zealand, there will be no exchanges of Christmas post this year using the SA Post Office (SAPO) services.
SAPO said the changes were made in response to stricter lockdown rules introduced in some countries.
“This means that transport connections to and from the affected countries are no longer available,” said the SAPO in a statement on Wednesday.
SAPO has identified these 25 countries with which postal services ARE currently available:
United Arab Emirates
United States of America
SAPO advises customers not to mail items to countries that are not on the list.
“If, however, an article has been posted to a country where the mail service is not available, it will be kept safely and dispatched immediately once transport connections become available,” it said. – SAnews.gov.za
