      International Shipping and Holiday Closure Calendar

      Timing is essential when delivering blood samples.

      A list of the dates that blood cannot be delivered to laboratories (labs) or Transplant Centers is available via International Shipping Calendar (below). The labs or centers in a country are closed on these dates because of a national or religious holiday. Dates are provided by the World Marrow Donor Association (WMDA) who is responsible for collecting closures from each registry. 

      In general, labs and centers are always closed on certain days of the week:

      • All labs and centers are closed Saturday and Sunday unless specified below.
      • Every Friday and Saturday, the labs in Saudi Arabia and Israel are closed.
      • Every Sunday, the labs in all countries except Israel and Saudi Arabia are closed.
