Homeland Security Blocks Christmas Packages

American Homeland Security has now blocked incoming airmail packages over 500 grams (1 pound). Post offices here in Thailand report the new 500 gram policy began December 8, 2010 and will supposedly continue until February 7, 2011, although it remains uncertain whether the new policy will actually end on that date.

American travelers abroad take note, this effectively makes it impossible to send any gifts or souvenirs by airmail to the United States until the policy is reversed. You can, however, still send packages by surface mail, which from here in Thailand would take about 2-3 months.
