Service Update Bulletin 31st October 2016

International Services

Italy: Update 31st October

Poste Italiane is now fully operational for both collection and delivery after the earthquake on Wednesday 24th August 2016. However, as some may have lost their homes they have been displaced to other areas of the country, so please check new addresses before shipping items.

The earthquake that took place on Wednesday 26th October did not affect collections and deliveries, however, there are some limitations at certain times resulting from closure of roads by the local authorities.

Chile: Update 27th October

Delays are expected in the processing of inbound and outbound mail as a result of an industrial action being taken by Chilean customs staff from Wednesday 26th – Friday 28th October.

Uruguay: Update 24th October

The industrial action by Uruguayan postal workers is still ongoing. As a result, the processing of mail will be delayed and all Union member countries are requested to postpone the dispatching of parcels to Uruguay until further notice.
