     Worldwide, some shipping restrictions have been put in place by certain countries. Below is a partial list of the countries restricting shipments from Korea (although the situation in well under control, and was contained early in Korea).

     Mostly, EMS(Express Shipping) is the new base shipping method, although due to Covid express shipping times are no longer as fast as in the past.

     If you have previously placed an order that can no longer be shipped by Regular Airmail and need to upgrade to Express, there is an additional shipping charge of $20. Below is a link to add the charge to a previously placed order.
