Pos Malaysia has announced that it is suspending international mail and parcel services to almost every destination, with a few exceptions. They are China, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and the UK. The suspension of the service is due to the cancellation of flights as well as airport closures, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The company made the announcement on its website, stating that this will be effect until further notice. Express Mail Service will remain available, but in a limited capacity. The number of destinations where the service is unavailable is pretty extensive. But Pos Malaysia has shared them on its own website, as well as Twitter.

With a large portion of the world taking precautions against the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s hard to tell when the full range of these services will return. Malaysia has extended its Movement Control Order until 14 April. But with Pos Malaysia, other countries will also have to resume normal operations before these services are restored.
The company also says that it will update the details of its international products and services from time to time. Until then, if you have need of any of these services, you’ll likely have to wait for them to be available again.
