If you are planning to mail anything, traditionally, of course, read this. Thailand Post will completely suspend all services from April 12 to April 15 in order to relocate its information technology centre.

The shutdown of postal services is to coincide with the Songkran holiday so as to minimise the public inconvenience.

The shutdown is unavoidable because the IT network will have to be overhauled and relocated.

Customers are advised to complete their mailing requirements before the shutdown or delay using the postal services to after April 15.

For those using financial services like Pay at Post, online money order, Western Union money transfer and top-up payment for mobile phone, please be informed that the services would not be available on April 4-6.

The IT network for postal financial services would be overhauled ahead of the mail shutdown.

In light of the service suspension, the parcel mailing should complete before April 3 to ensure the delivery before April 12-15. The overseas parcel should be mailed before April 9.

The EMS mail should complete by April 9 for delivery before the shutdown.

Any mailing done after the respective deadlines will be delivered after April 15.

Customers can still track the delivery process through the 1545 THP Contact Centre.

Online vendors are advised to alert their customers and to adjust the mailing schedule to ensure timely delivery before and after the shutdown.

Postal services will resume on April 16.

In another development, postal customers are reminded that they are banned from mailing live animals, illicit drugs, pornographic materials.
