Canada Post Service Alert

Canada Post Suspends Package Services to Australia and New Zealand due to COVID-19 Outbreak

Canada Post has followed the US Postal Service by suspending air package services to Australia and New Zealand as well.

Effective immediately, parcel and packet services transported by air to Australia and New Zealand are suspended until further notice, Canada Post announced.

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, border closures have severely restricted flights to Australia and New Zealand. As a result, the following services have been suspended:

  • XpresspostTM–International
  • Tracked PacketTM–International
  • Small Packet–International Air

Canada Post will continue to accept and transport parcels to both countries using the following surface services which can take up to twelve (12) weeks to arrive:

  • International Parcel–Surface
  • Small Packet–International Surface

Canada Post Services Not Impacted by Service Suspension

Canada Post will also continue to accept and transport documents sent via Letter-post and Registered Letter-post, but senders should expect delays.

Priority Worldwide, which is transported and delivered by FedEx on for Canada Post remains available to Australia and New Zealand and maybe the best solution at this moment to ship packages from Canada to either country to arrive in time for the holidays.
