Jamaica has put quarantine measures in place across the country which Jamaica Post need to comply with. As a result, they may have reduced workforce and some mail services not available. Signature on delivery services has currently being suspended. Delays with mail services are to be expected. 


Jamaica Post advised that postal operations have been disrupted due to tremors associated with the 7.7 magnitude earthquake that occurred in the Caribbean on 28th January. There was an emergency evacuation of the international mail processing centre in Kingston and all inbound and outbound mail operations are affected. 


Jamaica Post has confirmed that they have resumed full operations following the shutdown caused by the noxious fumes. However, they have advised there will be some delays in mail processing from 21st May to 7th June, whilst they clear the backlog.

Jamaica – Outbound airmail delays

Jamaica Post has advised that they have been experiencing airlift challenges since 8th April, due to capacity challenges arising from the grounding of Boeing 737 Max aircraft.

This has resulted in several dispatches being rerouted to alternative air carriers and in some cases not being airlifted at all. The situation is being actively addressed and Jamaica Post will provide an update as soon as possible.

Jamaica Post thanks everyone for their understanding.
