Latest update: 11 March 2020
Latest update: 13 March 2020
End date: 13 March 2020
Incident: Services suspended

Initial incident
Services to Iran have been suspended until further notice due to air restrictions.

Update 13 March 2020
Flights to Iran have resumed from Thursday 12 March 2020, letter and parcels dispatch has also resumed

Italy

Latest Update 13 March

Italian Post has advised the whole of the country has now become a Yellow Zone, subject to extraordinary measures, which is effective until 3 April or unless a later date is advised. Human movement and social contact are to be minimised. Commercial transport is permitted with precautionary measures aimed at preventing/minimising human contact to preserve personal safety, hence a heavy reduction in workforce is applied in the logistic chain within Italian Post with impacts to processing and delivery.

As a result, quality of service is affected on all postal products until the end of the Coronavirus epidemic. Precautionary delivery methods continue with signatures not obtainable from the actual addressee during this period.

Saudi Arabia

Start date: 13 March 2020
End date: Ongoing
Incident: Non-contact delivery of signature required items

Saudi Post has informed us that to minimise the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), and the requirements of the government of Saudi Arabia, all letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items requiring a signature on delivery will provisionally, for security reasons, be delivered to customers indirectly.

Consequently, it will not be mandatory for Saudi Post to provide written proof of delivery, and the delivery confirmation will be based on a code sent to the addressee’s mobile phone.

USA

Start date: 12 March 2020

We continue to operate a normal service to the USA following the announcement on 11 March by Donald Trump. We will be continuing to monitor the situation and will advise of any changes immediately that impact our service to the USA.
