COVID-19

Updated: 18 August 2020

The global COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted international deliveries by air. The situation continues to improve, with airmail now available to some countries, Speedpost to more destinations, and just a few countries still having surface mail services only. However, as delivery times by surface mail are significantly longer, we’re still offering FREE SURFACE MAIL SHIPPING, where available, until regular air mail services are restored. Simply choose this option at Checkout.

Depending on your location, your current shipping options will be displayed during Checkout – including if there are currently none. Please accept our apologies if this is the case. Please contact us to explore possible options.

If your country is not listed above, please see Hongkong Post's latest notice of destinations and restrictions. If you would like an estimate of the delivery time of your order before placing it, please contact us and we will enquire and advise you accordingly.

For faster delivery times, international air freight carriers can be used, but their prices are currently inflated by reduced capacity. We suggest you contact us for a quote to avoid any surprises, and to allow us to bill you separately for the cost.

We will post updated advice on this page as the situation changes. Thank you for your understanding.
