What happens if I already shipped a package to one of these countries?

Until these countries begin accepting shipments again, if USPS packages are shipped to these destinations they will be returned to sender. To help you save time & hassle, Pirate Ship will prevent you from purchasing USPS labels for these destinations until shipments are being accepted again.
