NL Post Shipping Update Amidst CoViD-19

Below is an update from NL Post:

Date of Issue Country / Update Service Disruption Update Expected Delay
10-Apr-2020 General update COVID-19

At the moment it is not possible to send mail and parcels to certain countries (see below). Countries around the world are taking measures due to the coronavirus that may affect logistical processes. Please find below the latest information per destination. In addition to delays in many destinations, some countries are updating their processes to minimise contact between deliverer and recipient during pick up and drop off. This can mean that they no longer request a signature for receipt, and the shipment is simply delivered. It also may be the case that routes into certain countries become unavailable. The overview provides information about which disruptions may affect international mail and parcel delivery. No delivery due to COVID-19 Route closed - mail and parcel delivery not possible - at this time we do not know when the situation changes nor can we tell you when routes reopen. The situation changes per country. Please note; we update this list regularly:

However, to prevent the spread of the novel corona virus, extra measurements are taken in the whole country as from today. This will lead to longer transit times than usual for mail and e-commerce volume. All services to Italy remain open.
