Sri Lanka – Update on disruption to mail operations owing to COVID-19

06 May, 2020

​The designated operator of Sri Lanka, the Department of Posts, asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that the force majeure situation previously declared will continue until further notice following the extension of the full curfew in four main cities and the partial curfew in a further 18 districts.

As the Department of Posts is still working with a limited workforce, and flight restrictions continue, all inbound mail operations will be subject to delays and outbound international mail operations are suspended until further notice. 

The Department of Posts thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding. It will update them via EmIS once the situation has returned to normal.
