International Mail Service Restrictions during Covid-19 pandemic 

Acceptance of International outbound Mail

Covid-19 pandemic has severely impacted the movement of international mail within the international postal network. Implementation of sanitary measures includes shutdown of airports and restrictions on international travel, leading to unavailability of scheduled flights or significant reduction in airline capacity and frequency of flights to and from Maldives to all the international destinations.

Although the precautionary measures imposed by the destination countries has been eased and the postal activities are operational, the Government’s health directives are still being strictly observed. Therefore, delays in mail movement are still expected due to these restrictions and suspension of signature on delivery are still effective in some countries.

Changes in the service offering observed in the destination countries will be updated here as they are available!
