Canada: Only international inbound items requiring the payment of customs duties and taxes will be sent from our depots to a retail post office for collection. Customers will receive a delivery notice card telling them which post office is holding their item for collection. All other international items that would ordinarily require a signature will be left in a safe location without obtaining a signature from the recipient.
Indonesia: A number of commercial flights to and from Indonesia’s international airports have also been suspended until further notice. Consequently, Pos Indonesia operations, for all outbound and inbound mail are disrupted. Delivery standards cannot be guaranteed; addressee signature on delivery of inbound items has been suspended.
Malaysia: Delays are expected in processing, transportation and delivery of both incoming and outgoing international shipments of all postal items. For delivery of items to a mail room, the addressee will receive a text message or telephone call. Deliveries to premises or areas needing to be closed down due to COVID-19 are suspended.
New Zealand: New Zealand Post has changed the way in which items requiring signature are delivered, so as to eliminate the need for customers to use scanners. The delivery staff will knock at the door as usual, step back away from the door, and ask for the recipient’s name to record proof of delivery. In this way, the need for any physical contact is eliminated. New Zealand Post can no longer guarantee service delivery standards.
