There may be long delays in foreign shipments

There are large volumes of mail in Europe, which is causing delays in transporting, sorting and distribution of mail in many countries.

The transport of mail between Finland and the United Kingdom will slow down due to partial suspension of passenger flights for two weeks from December 21, 2020. Delays are expected for items sent from Finland as well as items arriving in Finland.

There are also long delays in mail transportation to the United States due to shrinking mail cargo capacity. From January 1, 2021, electronic advance information for customs clearance will be required for shipments to the United States. If electronic advance information is not done, the shipment will be returned.
