Last post was fun – so many people thinking that my temporary USA ban was some form of political statement, and/or having no clue on how international mail is actually being moved around. Even some of the “you suck” crowd came to chip in. Well, whatever. They see me rollin’, they hatin’.
Facts are: Borders are closed. Well, technically not closed completly but all air and rail traffic is cancelled, foreigners are not allowed in unless they work in Poland, everyone else gets mandatory 14-day quarantine. Again, except people crossing the border to work but I really don’t want to get into the specific details here. The important thing to note here is:
Postal services for all international mail are on hold. There will be no ODE shipping for the next 2 weeks, and frankly it’s pretty much given that time will be extended.
The official statement, use your preferred online translator: https://www.poczta-polska.pl/zmiany-w-zwiazku-z-wprowadzeniem-stanu-zagrozenia-epidemicznego/
I will send confirmation emails later today, but obviously all the orders are on hold until further notice. Sorry.
And for those who still don’t get it – not all goods are being shipped the same way. Sure, some countries might allow bulk cargo ships (after any quarantine period) but that doesn’t mean I can go to the nearest port, toss the bags over and that’s it. Contrary to some opinions of reddit armchair experts – I’ve been doing this for a few years now, I do have some idea of what I’m doing.
