Albania – Update on force majeure situation

26 June, 2020


Albanian Post wishes to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that the Albanian Government has now declared the state of emergency to be over, but is continuing to enforce measures aimed at minimizing the spread of COVID-19.

As several international airlines have resumed flights to and from Albania, Albanian Post's operations are returning to normal. However, transport capacity remains variable and the list of destination countries is very fluid and liable to change from day to day.

There are still a small number of countries to which Albanian Post is unable to transport mail and parcels, and it will not accept postal items destined for those countries until sufficient transport capacity becomes available.

Although the force majeure situation remains in place, Albanian Post is endeavouring to meet delivery standards (including delivery time and other quality parameters) for letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items applicable under UPU provisions and related bilateral and multilateral agreements with designated operators.

Albanian Post thanks all other Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding; it will inform them of developments via EmIS.
