New security measures update


Temporary security measures for mail to the USA update

Temporary additional security measures introduced by the United States Homeland Security Agency have been extended until 7 February 2011. As a result, mail weighing over 500g for delivery to the USA may experience some delays.

The vast majority of mail from An Post customers to the USA will not be affected by these security measures.

Only mail over 500g will be transported under alternative arrangements and short delays will be caused by longer transit times (1 to 2 days) and increased security measures upon arrival in the USA.

Note: There will be no delay on the New International Courier Service which is available at selected Post Offices, for more details please see

Regular updates will be available through our Customer Services team and website
