You read that right, it’s September 2021 and USPS is having to suspend package services to Australia due to a new wave of COVID-19 outbreak spreading across Australia. Approaching two years since this virus effectively shut down the world and it is still causing disruption and death globally.
Due to the latest outbreak in Australia, it has forced mail centers across the country to close amidst new lockdowns across the country. For this reason, USPS has taken the decision to stop sending packages to the country for the time being.
We are expecting an update to be released on the USPS website imminently, however, it was actually eBay who dropped the news first. For eBay’s full statement see below.
