In 2022, receiving a birth certificate, property rights, contracts, diploma and other important documents from abroad became difficult. Experts in the field of logistics do not undertake to predict the probable duration of restrictions.

Is there an affordable and stable option to send documents from Portugal to Russia in 2022?
Yes, it is. We recommend you to take a closer look at the method of documents delivery from Portugal to Russia, offered by the international courier service TSM.
The current state of affairs with sending documents from Portugal to Russia in 2022
The transport blockade imposed by the EU and the refusal of a number of international postal services to work with the Russian direction significantly worsened the situation. We stopped sending parcels and documents to Russia by UPS, Federal Express, TNT Express, DHL, etc.
The authorities of Poland, Sweden, Latvia, Denmark, Finland and Australia have notified the Universal Postal Union of their refusal to issue mailings to the territory of the Russian Federation. Therefore, the Russian Post has stopped receiving parcels and envelopes from unfriendly countries as a forced measure.
The inability to directly pay for delivery services, for example, an envelope with documents from the United States to Russia, has baffled a lot of people. After all, Russian bank cards are not accepted for payment by foreign companies. Few people have an opportunity to issue foreign payment cards.
