Parcel and packet services to Australia and New Zealand temporarily suspended
Red alert: Canada Post is not accepting mail and parcels for these destinations due to a temporary service disruption.
Date posted: October 06, 2021

Effective immediately, parcel and packet services transported by air to Australia and New Zealand are suspended until further notice. Border closures to combat the Covid-19 pandemic have severely restricted flight capacity to Australia and New Zealand. As a result, the following services are suspended:

XpresspostTM–International

Tracked PacketTM–International

Small Packet–International Air.

Canada Post will continue to accept and deliver to these destinations using the following surface services. Surface delivery may take up to twelve (12) weeks:

International Parcel–Surface

Small Packet–International Surface


That's interesting because I don't think the rules for air transport into Australia have changed in the last year. As I noted in a previous post, there has been a large backlog in deliveries within Australia, to the point where they suspended accepting parcels within the country for a week to clear the backlog. 

It seems there were issues in Sydney due to their lockdowns that have just been lifted. It's hard to tell because the federal government is pretty secretive when it comes to bad news but there may have been flight restrictions that are flying under the radar, so to speak, because delta got into the country via an infected air crew. But currently they are saying that all restrictions will be removed by around Christmas, although the federal government can't seem to get their act together to plan the implementation.

Speaking of which I hear that you are going to be opening your borders soon.

The strange thing is that one could argue that this is a great leap forward in breaking down the iron curtain around our border. See, no police state if you just keep citizens from returning. Problem solved as far as our right-wing prime minister was concerned. The man who refused to fund quarantine facilities so that the few people who could fly in would be able to move around a bit, get some fresh air, not be stuck in a single room for 2 weeks, and not catch covid from the crappy ventilation system in a hotel that isn't fit for purpose. You know like the successful one in your previous video. 

So sure, any reasonable solution is going to upset some people. Imagine getting to stay at home for the minor inconvenience of getting phone calls now and then and sending a photo. Truly a first world problem. But you all keep on taking off your shoes to get on an airplane

Australia has its own delivery issues internally, and the bulk of USPS international mail goes on commercial passenger flights. Those are still greatly reduced so it's been a struggle to get delivery to Australia for some time. I think the Australian system secretly welcomes the suspension; they aren't picking up from online retailers in Australia either. More routes are expected to open up in November, so it's expected that the USPS will resume delivering to Australia then.


There was a one week suspension of accepting parcels while they caught up with the backlog in delivery (or should that be backlogue, I can never tell when it is creeping Americanism or that I just don't know how to spell).

This was primarily due to the delta outbreak in Sydney. During that week a parcel that had left China about a month and a half before was delivered to me so I say it was a success.

With hindsight, they probably should have just gone back to shipping by slow boat, saving time and CO2 emissions.

 p.s. Thanks DeJoy, not content with fucking up U.S. mail delivery, eh?

Australia has a general rule that native animals are protected and people often don't believe in wildlife management that controls populations, except where the animals impact agriculture and even that is very controversial. They were quite right to bring back the croc population but the challenge will be deciding whether to start limiting the population growth. But this person was making a living from the tourist trade so I don't have a lot of sympathy. It will probably be an entertaining story for his business.
