Bermuda Post Office Update On International Mail

May 18, 2020

The Bermuda Post Office [BPO] provided the following update regarding international mail.

A Government spokesperson said, “The Bermuda Post Office [BPO] provided the following update regarding international mail.

“The public will be aware that there have been major global disruptions to the logistical networks for mail, such as airlines and shipping, due to COVID-19.

“The result has halted the distribution of all international mail.

“However, the BPO is advising that it’s working diligently with its overseas partners, such as the US and UK, to develop alternatives for sending and receiving international mail. These pursuits are ongoing and the BPO will update on any developments.

“As it relates to outbound overseas mail from Bermuda, the BPO notes that sending mail to the US, UK and Canada cannot be guaranteed at this time. This is due, in part, to the disruption of postal routes and other factors, such as acceptance into postal channels by international postal partners.

“Regarding incoming overseas mail to Bermuda, the BPO notes the following:

US Mail/United States Postal Service:

  • International mail received within the US destined for Bermuda is being returned-to-sender as mail service is suspended.
  • Mail distribution from the US to Bermuda will resume when the L. F. Wade International Airport reopens and commercial flights resume.

United Kingdom – Royal Mail:

  • Mail from the UK is being transported to Bermuda by container ship. A UK mail shipment is expected to arrive in Bermuda by the second week of June. All mail received into Bermuda is delivered within four (4) working days.

Canada – Canada Post:

  • The BPO advises that Canada is not transporting mail to Bermuda until the L. F. Wade International Airport reopens and Air Canada resumes flight service.

    …because it would kill somebody to arrange the usage of the daily cargo flight to Bermuda out of NJ. Initiative is treated like a disease sometimes.

      Please consider using cargo flights. I have an outgoing cheque that I dropped off at the Post Office that needs to be delivered and I am also waiting on two inbound cheques that will probably be lost if they get ‘returned to sender’. Two+ months is too long with no mail service. Why open the Post Offices when there is no inbound or outbound mail?

    For items that are somewhat time-sensitive, it would be nice to know if the Post Office has Post Marked and Post Dated International Mail, especially since Gov’t Depts. are on skeleton crews, so that when lines are opened , it does not appear to be the Senders’ fault. (This would be an understanding with all involved parties).
    Thank You for your Due Diligence.
