India – Update on measures to limit the spread of COVID-19

26 April, 2021


The Department of Posts (India Post), asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that certain restrictions have been reintroduced in the country owing to the COVID-19 situation. The air, rail and road network remains limited. India Post continues to accept inbound international mail (letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items); however, owing to the limited domestic transport capacity, the declared or otherwise agreed service delivery standards (including delivery times and other quality parameters) cannot be guaranteed. In the case of outbound mail, a limited number of cargo and evacuation flights are being used to dispatch letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items to select countries based on the availability of carriers. India Post thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding.
