Large amounts of ash have erupted from the Taal Volcano approximately 60 miles south of the capital Manila since 12 January 2020 and our partners Philippines Post have advised that the areas of Batangas, Laguna and Tagaytay City have been most affected.
Since 12 January, some international flights have been cancelled, delaying the processing of international parcels. Normal operations resumed on 14 January 2020 with regards to all international flights carrying parcels, but delays are still to be expected as the volcano continues to release ash and rocks.
The Philippines remains under "Alert level 4" (Intense unrest related to earthquakes / volcanic tremors etc.) with further hazardous eruptions still possible within the coming days.
The result of this activity is that there will remain delays of between 24-72 hours in terms of delivery to Luzon Island (the main Philippine Island).
Further updates will be made when these are given by our postal partners.
