April 28, COVID-19 Update

Access Worldwide has contingency plans in place to handle these country suspensions. Any suspended countries will be diverted to a special hold area and kept by country and by day. Once the suspensions are lifted we will enter the mail at that time. Access Worldwide will continue to receive and hold all mail until such time when we are able to send it.  We are set up to handle this country by country, so that we can release each country’s mail as soon as they are able to accept it. 

The following countries have suspended certain mail services:
